The Naval Families Federation believes in fairness and equality, we value diversity in all our dealings when helping families with the challenges that naval life can bring and also as a responsible employer.
We value people as individuals with diverse opinions, cultures, lifestyles and circumstances and are committed to providing accessible services and support, delivered in a way that respects the needs of each individual , regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
By demonstrating these beliefs, the Naval Families Federation also ensures that it develops a workforce that is diverse, non-discriminatory and appropriate to deliver support to our naval community.
Equality and diversity values are embedded into our policies and procedures, so that equality and diversity becomes the norm for all.
Equality is not about treating everyone the same, it is about ensuring that access to opportunities are available to all, by taking account of people’s differing needs and capabilities.
Diversity is about recognising and valuing differences through inclusion, regardless of age, disability, sex and sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy and motherhood, race (including ethnic or national origin, colour and nationality), religion or belief (including no belief).
