Our Commitment Statement

Community Gateway Association recognises that Equality, Diversity and Inclusion plays an important part in everything we do.  As a locally based housing association we are committed to serving the communities in which we operate.  Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is embedded in all we do through our strategies, practices, behaviours and values.

We embrace individuality and believe our differences as individuals make us stronger as an organisation.  By creating an inclusive and dynamic environment where people can be themselves it supports us to perform at our best, providing excellent services for our customers.

We promote dignity and respect for all and ensure that we treat everyone fairly and honestly.  We will not unlawfully discriminate against individuals, including those with protected characteristics in line with the Equality Act 2010; (Age, Disability, Gender Re-assignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religion and Belief, Sex, and Sexual Orientation).

By getting to know our customers better we can build stronger relationships and connections which help us to deliver excellent services and provide quality homes which meet their individual needs.  We aim to remove any barriers or potential barriers to anyone wishing to access our services and we provide support to enable individuals to live successfully in their homes.

As a landlord and an employer we have worked hard to ensure that our organisation embraces difference, treats everyone with dignity and respect and is a safe place to live or work.  We believe we have achieved a great deal but recognise that there is always more that can be done.  We are committed to continuing to learn and improve so we can become a truly diverse and inclusive organisation

We believe we have achieved a great deal but acknowledge that there is always more that can be done. Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is central to the way that we work and runs throughout our Corporate Strategy and accompanying policies and procedures:
