Equal Opportunities Policy

WMRSASC is striving towards Equal Opportunities in service provision and recruitment. The centre provides support to individuals who have suffered any form of sexual abuse and, because of the nature of the work carried out, WMRSASC reserves the right to only recruit women. This has legal verification under Schedule 9 Part 1 of the Equalities Act 2010.

WMRSASC will not discriminate in the areas of service provision or recruitment on the grounds of ethnicity, physical or learning ability, sexual preference or religious beliefs. Equal opportunity in employment means that selection and recruitment are based fairly on ability to meet the requirements of the job. Equal opportunity in service provision means that we strive to meet them in fair and consistent ways.
