We are fully committed to equality in the provision of our services and in our role as an employer, and meeting our obligations under equalities legislation. We ensure that services and employment opportunities are accessible to all.

Equalities and diversity

In line with our Corporate Plan, Richmond Council housing services are dedicated to creating 'a borough for everyone' to ensure equal opportunity and a service delivery that is accessible for all residents. Our equalities and diversity policy statement sets out how we approach equality and diversity at Richmond Council.

There are internal and external governance structures in place to help develop, review, implement and mainstream our equality and diversity work, and there are specific individual and group roles in meeting our equality and diversity responsibilities.

Equalities analysis

To ensure we are providing services on an equitable basis to all sections of the community, regular annual monitoring reports are completed on the delivery of our housing services.

Monitoring reports include the ethnic origin and gender of people accessing housing advice, homelessness, temporary accommodation services, applicants on the Council’s housing queues and applicants granted a tenancy.
