North Star provide services to a wide range of people, and as such our aim is to be responsive to the needs of all of these communities and the individuals we serve. Equality and diversity are therefore integral to all of our activities in every aspect of work we do.

“North Star protects and promotes equal, real freedom and substantive opportunity to live in the ways people value and would choose, so that everyone can flourish. We recognise people’s different needs, situations and goals and are committed to removing any barriers that limit what people can do and can be.”

Our commitment to equality and diversity:

  • We will develop services that overcome discrimination and enable people to achieve their full potential.
  • Our services will be accessible and fair to everyone.
  • We will demonstrate equality in our day to day work.
  • We will work in partnership with disadvantaged communities and individuals to ensure that their voices are heard, their rights respected and their needs reflected in our services.
  • Our Board and workforce will reflect diversity and be representative of the communities in which we operate.
  • We will ensure that there is no discrimination in our recruitment or selection of Board members, employees, contractors and external partners.
