Our Equality and Diversity Report for 2017/18 is now available to read.
The Gateshead Housing Company puts equality and diversity at the heart of the way we deliver services. This is reflected in one of our company values – ‘Inclusive, valuing diversity’.
Work is undertaken at both a corporate and service level and in our partnership arrangements, especially with Gateshead Council. This report highlights some of the activity we have been involved in over the last 12 months to support our equality priorities.
Our aim is to make equality part of our everyday work, to ensure that we remain focussed on providing a workplace where employees feel comfortable to be themselves and to provide the best service to our customers. It is also about understanding the communities in which we work to ensure that our services are tailored to those needs.
This report contains some of the highlights from 2017/18 as well as some of the priorities we will focus on in 2018/19.
