The Citadel Youth Centre believes that all children and young people are entitled to be treated with respect and as being of equal value. This by implication requires a clear responsibility from centre staff to make every effort to counter discrimination in any form by creating circumstances which enable the children, young people, families and carers with whom we work to achieve their full potential, free from prejudice.
As part of this commitment the Project will endeavour to:
- actively promote equality of opportunity
- actively work to prevent discrimination
- Actively operate under the Equality Act (2010) and ensuring those who have “protected characteristics”: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation are treated equally and fairly.
The Citadel has also worked to improve inclusive practice by delivering an Inclusion project from 2017-2018. The report bellow provides a background on the project and is a resource for good practice for practitioners wishing to increase their awareness and implement cultural inclusiveness in their practice.
