The Equality Steering Group is chaired by the Chief Executive, Malcolm Johnston, and has been working towards improving our service for our local community.

As well as meeting our legal requirements this is also key in improving our Customer Care Standards. It is one of the key Corporate Projects and has Councillor Chris Madeley as a representative of Cabinet on the group.  It also includes representatives from service areas and a number of Community organisations.
