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.
