AGP is committed to offering service which provides equality of opportunities and freedom from all discrimination for their entire client group, volunteers and staff.
There are many important issues that may affect our client group such as race, culture, age and ethnicity. AGP strives to eliminate any sure disadvantage and particularly confronts the fundamental issues of racism, sexism and discriminations against people with disabilities.
AGP has firm commitment to develop (through regular consultations with its clients, staff, volunteers and supporting organisations) its own Equal Opportunity Policy. This policy will be understood, practised, implemented and monitored with the Local and National Initiatives.
AGP declares commitment to:
The Principle of Equal Opportunity in service and employment.
AGP declares opposition to any form of less favourable treatment accorded to trainees, employees, applicants for employment or volunteers on the grounds of:
- Sexual orientation or preference
- Race, creed, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin
- Religious beliefs
- Marital or parental status
- Any disability
AGP recognises obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and supports the spirit and intent of the related code of practice:
- For elimination of discrimination on the grounds of sex and marriage and the promotion of Equality in Employment and Service.
- For the elimination of racial discrimination and the promotion of equality of opportunity in employment.
- Instant dismissal of anyone guilty of harassing any AGP staff or trainee.
Monitoring and review of this statement will be ongoing and subject to regular examination. AGP Management will treat any unfair or discriminatory conduct by any member of staff as a disciplinary offence.
