Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service is fully committed to the principles of Equality and Diversity for a modern public service, promoting equal opportunities in employment and service delivery across the whole organisation. As a public body, we also have an obligation to ensure that our staff are treated fairly whilst in employment with the Service.
In accordance with the county council's approach to diversity, we value the range of different people in Suffolk, but recognise some can be disadvantaged and discriminated against both as an employee and as a service user. We are committed to developing policies to tackle inequality and exclusion, by ensuring services are accessible and our recruitment and employment practices are fair.
We want to make sure people are not discriminated against for any reason and we will not tolerate discrimination of any kind.
