Policy on Protecting People
This is the Protecting People Policy for Central Wellbeing SCIO (thereafter referred to as Central Wellbeing in this document).
Policies support staff, associates, volunteers, individuals, family members and carers participating in activities, events and projects facilitated by Central Wellbeing.
We believe that everyone can contribute to their community and to society if they have the right encouragement and support. Everyone’s experience and ideas matter. Some people may need more support to participate safely.
We do not describe people as vulnerable. They may have characteristics or are in situations that may make them more at risk of harm but characteristics such as age, gender and disability in itself does not make someone vulnerable.
Equal Opportunities Policy
This policy aims to foster a culture of Equality and to recognise the positive contribution that each individual can make to the business irrespective of their sex, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race (which includes colour, nationality and ethnic or national origins), religion or belief, age or disability (“the Protected Characteristics”).
This policy covers all individuals working at all levels and grades, including senior managers, officers, directors, Employees, consultants, contractors, trainees, home-workers, part-time and fixed-term Employees, [volunteers,] casual workers and agency staff (collectively referred to as staff in this policy)
Staff are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity and the Company will not tolerate any less favourable treatment of any person on the grounds of the Protected Characteristics. It should be noted that staff have a personal responsibility for the implementation of this policy and to ensure that they treat others with the respect and dignity that they expect to be treated with themselves.
