Equality & Diversity

We aim to ensure equality for all residents. To achieve this we have agreed the following Equality Promises.

Our Equality Promises:
  • We will make sure that anyone can access our services
  • We will make sure that services are designed and delivered to address the needs of our residents and stakeholders
  • We will make sure that service uptake is representative of our residents and local communities
  • We will make sure we use contractors and suppliers who embrace our equality commitments.
  • We will assess the impact of our services from an equality point of view.
  • We will improve the way we collect and use resident information
  • We will ensure we provide equality in the workplace and for potential employees
  • We will prioritise equality issues so that we can keep our promises

Equality Champions

Solon's equality champions meet monthly to discuss issues or concerns surrounding people being able to fairly access the services we provide. They also review progress to make sure Solon is meeting the equality promises listed above.

The equality champions have recently been involved in:
  • Reviewing equality impact assessments (see our page about equality impact assessments for more information)
  • Reviewing performance against our equality strategy
  • Analysing the information we have collected about how fair our services are to all, to work out what we can improve on (you can download some examples of these reports on the right hand side of this page)
  • Revising equality questions that are included in the annual staff survey

This group is currently made up of 5 members of staff. Residents have attended these meetings in the past but we have not yet got a regular resident member. If you are a resident and are interested in attending a meeting or would like to find out more, then please contact Victoria Thorne on 0117 9167792, e-mail on
