Equality and Diversity

Removing barriers, embracing difference, adding value

Kent Fire and Rescue Service is committed to providing services which are accessible to all sections of the community, and to protecting those who are most at risk. We pride ourselves on having well-trained professional staff, and an open culture which values diversity and equality of opportunity in employment. How we achieve this is set out in Our Equality Vision and Objectives 2013/16, which has been revised to take account of the requirements of the Equality Act 2010.

Our approach:

Meeting the needs of different groups who share protected characteristics

Recognising that different groups of people have different needs, we try to ensure that we identify any specific requirements or risk factors and address these in our operational work and within the workplace.

You can find out information about our work with each of these groups with protected characteristics:
