Equal Opportunities Information

Statement of Intent

"Winchester City Council is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities in its role as an employer and in its role as a Local Authority responsible for the provision of services within the community. Accordingly, the Council has committed itself to developing positive policies to facilitate the employment of people with disabilities and to the elimination of discrimination on the grounds of race or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender and marital status, in its actions as an employer and in the delivery of the services for which it is responsible. It will encourage those organisations financially supported or contracted to deliver Council services to do likewise."

In order to assist the Council in the implementation of this policy and in monitoring its effectiveness, we ask that you provide the details requested below. We hope that these questions, seen in the context described above, will not cause offence, but that you will see the positive benefits of providing the information.

The information you provide will be used solely for monitoring purposes and will remain confidential within the Human Resources Directorate.
