Equality & diversity

Encouraging equal opportunities for all

Our mandate is to build a safe, just and tolerant society for everyone in the UK, regardless of their race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability or age.

Promoting equality and diversity is a duty the entire UK government take very seriously, and is a responsibility shared by all government departments.
