Equalities

Our Approach to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
Equality is at the heart of everything we do at Lewes District Council. Here you can find out about our policy, our objectives and how we aim to fulfil our legal duties under the Equality Act 2010.
Our Performance on Equalities
Looking at information about our community and thinking about equality helps us to deliver better services and be a better employer. We have a legal duty to promote equality and are also required to publish information to show how we are doing.
Celebrating Diversity
To celebrate the rich diversity of the people in Lewes District, we have introduced annual themes to recognise the challenges and achievements of particular groups of people and highlight activities and services of relevance to them.
Support Services for Residents
Here you can find information about services that support people and help them to access our services. This includes interpretation, translation and advocacy services, hate crime support services, and our safeguarding policy.
