Equality and Diversity

Belief in equality of opportunity forms the basis of the Skillnet Group’s philosophy.

We recognise that in our society, groups and individuals continue to be discriminated against and we acknowledge our responsibility as an employer and provider of services to promote equality and combat unfair treatment.

We agree with Kent County Council in saying that:

…”working to ensure fair treatment for all will improve the quality of our services. We also know that it is in everyone's best interests to make sure that all our employees and potential employees can develop their skills and talents to the full. We recognise that people from different backgrounds can bring fresh ideas and perceptions. This can make the way work is done more efficient and enable services to meet the needs of the community more effectively.”

Policy Statement:

Skillnet Group CIC believes that:

  •  It is important to be open and honest about our services.
  •  Everyone should be treated with respect and dignity.
  • We are all different but have the same right to make our own choices.
  • We must all have equal opportunities to resources and support
  • Sometimes we need to give more support to an individual so that he/she has an equal opportunity.
  • The rights/opinions of people we support are as important as the rights of our employees.

We aim to ensure that all groups and individuals within the community are given full opportunity to benefit from the support and job opportunities we provide. No person that we support (or potential person), carer, employee or job applicant will be unfairly discriminated against or receive less favourable treatment on grounds of:

Gender, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, disability, marital status, family commitments, hours worked, sexuality, age, religious or political beliefs, social class or trade union activity.
