Equality and Diversity

The Council's vision under our Corporate Plan is that South Holland can continue to increase the prosperity and wellbeing of our residents and businesses, whilst striving to protect and enhance the district's environment and its unique and historic character.

The Council is fully committed to eliminating discrimination and actively promoting equality of opportunity for everybody who lives in, works in or visits South Holland. The Council believes that its performance and achievements will be enhanced in an environment where equality of opportunity exists and prejudice and discrimination are not tolerated. The Council will work with its partners and the local community to challenge discrimination and to both celebrate diversity and promote cohesion. The Council will ensure it complies with race, disability, gender and wider equality legislation. 

The Councils Equality Workforce profile can be found below:

The purpose of this report is to provide an annual summary of the profile of the workforce of South Holland District Council (SHDC) by it's protected characteristics as defined under the Equality Act 2010.

All public sector employers, including local authorities, have a statutory duty under the Equality Act (2010) to publish the equality profile data it holds for its directly employed workforce on a regular annual basis. The latest workforce information for SHDC is based on data obtained as at 7 March 2024.

As equality monitoring questions are optional, the Council does not hold a full set of information for every employee. Where employees did not answer or did not want to state their protected characteristics, these are shown as 'not stated' or 'not specified'.
