Equality and Diversity

Equality is fundamental to Reading’s success as a diverse, multicultural and cohesive town. The vision for Reading in 2030 is to see a celebration of the rich diversity of communities across the town, greater equality and inclusion across the town’s communities and a broad, diverse and inclusive cultural life. It is a testament to everyone’s commitment that our 2011 residents’ survey showed that 81% of respondents believe people from different backgrounds get on well together in their local area and 76% of respondents felt they had been treated with respect and consideration by local public services.

Our aims:

  • Celebrate Diversity and Ensure Strong Communities
  • Challenge Discrimination and Hate Crime
  • Enhance Life chances
  • Equality in Employment
  • Make Equality and Inclusion Part of Everything We Do
