Description:
The people, who live, work, study in or visit Nottingham come from diverse backgrounds and circumstances. They are of all ages, races and ethnic groups, disabled and non-disabled, and they are from faith and non-faith backgrounds. The City also has a vibrant lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community. People live in a range of different types of households and have access to widely differing levels of income. As a City there are extremes of wealth with some areas of Nottingham being amongst the most deprived in the country. Having a diverse community is a great asset to our City. However, some communities experience disadvantage and discrimination that has a negative effect on the quality of their lives. Although this can affect all communities, most often it affects women, black and minority ethnic communities, disabled people, young and old people, lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people disproportionately. As one of the largest employers in Nottingham and one of the main providers of local services, the City Council is committed to providing equality of opportunity and tackling discrimination, harassment, intimidation and disadvantage. We are also committed to achieving the highest standards in service delivery, decision-making and employment practice
