Equality and diversity

The DBS is committed to promoting and embedding considerations of equality and diversity in all that we do, whether it is concerning our staff, service users or partners.

We are both legally and morally responsible for considering equality and diversity in our internal and external policies, ensuring that everyone who comes into contact with us is treated fairly, with dignity, and with respect for their personal circumstances.

Diverse workforce

We are committed to employing and developing a diverse workforce. This not only fosters innovation and a wider range of solutions, but allows the organisation to better respond to change, informing our policies and services so they reflect the needs of the wider public.

Our aim is to create a working environment where people feel valued and respected, and to nurture the potential of people to perform well.
