Equality, Diversity and Human Rights

The SPS Vision for Valuing Diversity, Promoting Equality and Human Rights is-

  • Everyone in SPS values diversity in all aspects of work;
  • Everyone in SPS is responsible for respecting and promoting equality and human rights; and
  • We have sustainable and effective policies and procedures that place equality, diversity, inclusion and respect for human rights at the centre of everything we do.

This is based on a human rights based approach which is underpinned by human rights values. As this has been a cultural change the process is on-going. We will continue to progress this approach in all our areas of our work.

We are an agency of the Scottish Government and some of our reporting requirements under the Equality Act 2010 Public Sector Equality Duty have been incorporated into the Scottish Government's information. Further Equality and Diversity reports are available under the Public Sector Equality Duty menu option on the left.
