Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service is committed to achieving equality throughout the organisation and across all of the services we provide. We are working towards a fully inclusive Service, where equality of opportunity and valuing diversity are at at the heart of everything we do.
We oppose all forms of unfair discrimination - on any grounds. We are committed to providing services that do not discriminate unfairly against any section of our communities, and to encouraging and supporting a diverse workforce that reflects those communities. We design our policies and work with our partners to help us achieve this goal.
Fire Service Equality Framework
We were among a handful of Fire and rescue Services which first achieved Level 4 out of a possible five in the national Local Government Equality Framework. This was later replaced by a specific Fire Service Equality Framework, in which we are ranked as ‘moving towards excellent’.
The self-assessment report for achieving the previous Level 4 is downloadable below:
