Equalities Frameword for Local Government Achieving logo

Brighton & Hove is a vibrant city. It is culturally, economically and socially diverse. We value this diversity and aim to support and encourage it. We also take a leading role in seeking to increase equality, inclusion and fairness in the city.

`Increasing equality` is a central principle informing how we plan, finance, deliver, commission and review our services.

We know that some people and places face disadvantage in our city. Some of these groups are protected in law, others are not.

The law protects people from discrimination because of their characteristics. Find out more about the Equality Act and protected characteristics.
