We believe quality is central to the day to day delivery of our services and our approach (pdf, 79kb) goes beyond the statutory duty.
We've agreed a number of overarching equality objectives that are linked to our strategic priorities below:
- improve the quality of life for Southwark's people through better access to services and creating sustainable mixed communities with opportunities for local people
- improve social cohesion by promoting positive relationships and a sense of community and belonging, by reducing fear and tensions, and encouraging civic responsibility so that contributions of individuals and groups to their communities are properly valued
- promote people's rights and responsibilities by ensuring we provide leadership and by encouraging our partners to do likewise - we'll protect the rights of local residents by ensuring that abuse, mistreatment and discrimination are identified and dealt with
- ensure we have a workforce that understands and is committed to achieving these goals and retains the confidence of our local communities - once agreed these objectives will form part of our annual performance report along side future target setting
