Equalities and Diversity Policy Lead
The equalities and diversity lead involves ADASS in examining all aspects of this vital agenda as it impacts on adult social care and the communities within which we work and live.
ADASS (previously as ADSS) has been active in this area for over 20 years and has contributed early and innovative thinking to the issues raised – of particular note was the work in bringing BME managers in to the wider Association community (Roy Taylor, Kingston and Chris Williams, Dudley) & Daphne Obang’s work relating to workforce issues.
Bringing things up to date, the personalisation agenda has very clear links with eliminating discrimination in the delivery of services and to reducing social exclusion. Enabling people to live independent lives, increasing choice and control, being enabled to make a social and economic contribution to society and staying safe and well are also central aims of the equalities and diversity agenda .
