Detail

The equality and diversity strategy’s vision is to create, by 2018, a service which can demonstrate that it serves all communities equally to the highest standards, building on a closer and more effective relationship with the public and creating a more diverse workforce which better reflects the diversity of the local working population in each area.

The strategy requires action by fire and rescue authorities, supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government, the LGA, CFOA and other partners in 5 priority areas: leadership, accountability, workforce diversity, service delivery, and evaluation and dissemination of good practice.
