Our Commitment to Equality and Diversity

Wyre Forest District Council has both a moral and a statutory obligation to reflect the needs of a diverse population through its service provision and as an employer.  We are committed to employing a diverse workforce and providing equitable services to the people of the Wyre Forest district.  Our aim is to fully meet our obligations and to learn from best practice, as we strive to improve as a local authority.

Equality Act 2010

The Public Sector Equality Duty came into force on 5 April 2011 as part of the Equality Act 2010

It aims to ensure all public bodies consider the needs of all individuals in their day to day work in shaping policy, delivering services, and in relation to their own employees.

Under the duty we are required to publish at least one equality objective which will continue to support improvements in our equality and diversity programme of work as set out by our Equality Scheme and Plan 2017-2020

Our objective is;

"Wyre Forest District is an inclusive place for its communities"


We have a formal Interpretation and Translation Policy which has been produced alongside other councils in Worcestershire.

Should you need to use interpretation or translation services please contact us.
