Equality and diversity

Hampshire County Council is committed to securing genuine equality of opportunity, whether required by law or not, in all aspects of its activities as an employer and service provider.

We recognise that passive policies will not reverse discrimination and disadvantage.

We'll work to encourage and assist disadvantaged groups or individuals creating a fair basis from which equality of opportunity can operate.
