At Accent, we believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly, regardless of their race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, beliefs, ethnic origin, nationality, language, carer responsibilities, marital or family status.
Our residents, their neighbourhoods and their communities are widely varied, diverse and multi-ethnic. We want to embrace this diversity, and make sure our homes and services meet the different needs and aspirations it creates.
All our people are expected to show respect for one another, and for the people they come into contact with. We aim to be approachable and easy to work with, and to deal with all our customers, suppliers, partners and one another with honesty and integrity, and a genuine desire to deliver services that fully satisfy everyone’s needs.
We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and social inclusion in all our activities, and we work to ensure that all our people – board members, staff and managers, and contractors and suppliers, demonstrate this commitment at all times.
Our commitment to equality and diversity is enshrined in our business plan and in our associated strategies, business plans, policies and procedures.
We will be accessible and fair to everyone. Our services and employment practices are working to overcome discrimination and disadvantage, and to enable people and communities to achieve their full potential.
