Annual progress report 2015/2016
As lead Cabinet Member for Equality, Fairness and Respect and chair of the Surrey Equality Group, I am delighted to introduce the annual progress report. The Equality, Fairness and Respect Strategy is the Council’s commitment to equality and diversity. We aim for all our services to be fair and to meet the needs of all Surrey’s communities. We also want our staff to work in a respectful and safe environment and for us to be representative of the population we serve. Despite the severe financial pressures we face, the Council continues to provide high quality services for vulnerable groups and this report shows how our services reach out to communities and adapt their provision to meet different needs.
