Equal Opportunities Policy

Altered Images (Contractors) Ltd. aims to be an inclusive organisation where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, and where there is equal opportunity for all. Altered Images (Contractors) Ltd. respects and values the diversity of its staff and users.

This means that all Altered Images (Contractors) Ltd. staff and users should understand and respect that there is a diverse work force and user community and that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and equality. This includes the legal and ethical requirement for Altered Images (Contractors) Ltd. to provide public services and conditions of employment that are appropriate to the needs of a diverse society.

Valuing diversity means that we recognise that we all have complex identities made up of many strands. These can include, but are not limited to, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and metal aptitudes, nationality, socio-economic status, and religious, political or other beliefs. This means we embrace and celebrate our differences in a positive environment, and are committed to engage with the needs of our diverse staff and users to enable us, both individually and corporately, to achieve our aims.

Altered Images (Contractors) Ltd. will tackle barriers to participation and create a culture in which equal opportunities and equal treatment are a priority for all staff and users. In the recruitment, training, pay and management of staff, and in all our day-to-day work with both colleagues and users, we seek to create an environment where attitudes and biases that hinder the progress of individuals and groups are dismantled and where we work together in mutual respect and tolerance.
