We are committed to equality and diversity and we strive to make Ashfield a place where no-one experiences discrimination or disadvantage because of their individual characteristics.

A district where the diversity of its community is recognised, supported and valued and where everyone in the district can feel safe from harassment and is able to access high equality services that respond to their individual and diverse needs.

Equality is about ensuring that all people are treated equally, this does not mean treating everyone the same, but recognising the differences in life situations and experiences and ensuring that there is equality of opportunity for all people taking into account their individual needs.
