Like all large organisations, we have a number of legal duties. These relate to many areas of our work, including and not least to Equality and Diversity. We also develop our own policies, to help managers and staff deliver services that are not only lawful, but that also try to give each customer a service best suited to their needs. We acknowledge and welcome our legal duties and use legislation, national guidance and our own policies as a framework for improvement.
However, we are not driven only by what the law tells us to do. Our policy and our programme of work is also based on what you have told us is important.
