Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan

Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service is committed to promoting equality, inclusion and diversity.  These key areas drive how we treat each other and how we interact with the communities of Derbyshire to deliver our services.

The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy outlines our approach to diversity, inclusion and equality. It summarises the continuing work towards embedding equality at the heart of all our activities and seeks to consolidate and build upon the significant progress that has already been achieved. It is of importance in both our inward facing responsibilities as an employer and our outward facing service delivery activities. It ensures we direct our limited resources on a risk based intelligence led basis to the most vulnerable and in need within our community without prejudice.

The Action Plan will be updated annually and reported and monitored through the Service’s Inclusion Performance Board and Inclusion and Equality Forum.

If you have any queries or comments on our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, or on equality and diversity in general, kindly contact the Inclusion Team on 01773 305305 or email
