The Calico Group provide homes and services to a wide range of people, including some of the most disadvantaged sections of the community. As a Registered Provider, they have a statutory duty to ensure that they provide equality for everyone who uses their services, and for those who work for them.
They also have a moral duty to respond to the wide social diversity within their community, and make sure they reflect this in their policies and procedures, and in practice through the day-to-day delivery of their services to the customer.
Their Equality Strategy, which has been drawn up with the involvement of tenants, staff and Board Members, sets out their principles and provides a strategic framework through which they will fulfil their obligations. It demonstrates their commitment to eliminating discrimination, identifying and removing barriers, providing equal opportunities for Customers, Staff and Board Members, and ensuring that no one feels excluded or disadvantaged.
