Our AimThe key to Chevin's success is awareness that every one of our tenants and staff is an individual. We appreciate that the success of Chevin depends on a diverse range of people, each with their own personality, outlook on life and their own interests and needs.
We are committed to continuously improving the services that we provide to our customers and the working environment of our staff. Our commitment to this area of work is reflected in our corporate aims, objectives and values of the organisation. Specifically Key Aim 4 states that we will operate in a fair, open and accountable manner.
We want to make sure that our services are accessible to all of our customers and to make sure that we do not discriminate or act unfairly. We want people and organisations we work with to see us as promoting diversity and equality and be a leading example of good practice.
Chevin has produced a single Equality and Diversity ‘Framework' which reflects the priorities and concerns of the communities that we serve. We focus on 9 'protected characteristics'
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage & Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy & Maternity
- Religion or Belief
- Sexual Orientation
A copy of the Equality Scheme can be found here. This has produced by working with staff, managers, and residents.
