Fair Play For All

We want PSS to be an organisation that’s inclusive, safe, diverse and fair. Every single person should always be treated fairly no matter what.

Our motto at PSS is ‘with us, you can’, and that’s why respecting diversity and promoting fairness is at the heart of what we do; ensuring that we support people to have equal chances, no matter what life throws at them. We want to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion and embed it as a fundamental aspect of who we are and what we do. At PSS we are confident that most of what we do is in line with the principles of equality, diversity and fairness. However it’s not enough to just say that we do this; we need to show it as well. So, today we’re launching our brand new equality and diversity plan: Fair Play For All.

Fair Play For All is an action plan that sets out what exactly it is we’re going to do to achieve our equality and diversity goals for the next two years across all areas of our organisation, and is themed under six categories:

We’re committed
We’re committed to equality, diversity, safety and fairness

We’re accessible
Our services, facilities and information are accessible for everyone

We’re inclusive
We involve people when we make decisions

We’re fair
We treat people fairly and do things in the right way

We’re diverse
Our people and services reflect their communities

We’re responsive
We actively seek feedback on our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion

It’s also important to note that whatever we do, we do it with the Equality Act 2010 in mind, making sure that not only do we promote equality, inclusion and diversity, but also that we actively oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination against any of the protected characteristics under the law.

Everyone at PSS will be helping to achieve our goals, but we’ve also set up an equality and diversity group, whose job it is to keep an eye on things and make sure we keep on pushing to be the fairest organisation we can be.

By working together, we’ll go further towards developing even more of a happy, inclusive culture that understands and respects the individual differences of the people we support and employ.
