Equality, Diversity and Human Rights
Fife Council is committed to providing fair and accessible services to all members of our community.
Our Equality and Diversity Scheme (2013-2015) sets out our priorities in relation to all protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010, on achieving positive outcomes for our service users, staff and customers. By advancing equality of opportunity we ensure that the community is able to access our services in a way which meets their needs.
Our Diversity Calendar has been designed as a useful resource, to raise awareness of important religious celebrations and international days. Please note that the calendar is accurate as far as we are aware, some dates may vary because they are determined by the lunar (moon) calendar. (Available from our Publication Section on this Page).
The theme for this year's Diversity Week 2016 is Modern Families and will run between 5th - 11th September, further details to follow. If you are interested in taking part/organising an event, please contact Centre for Equalities - e-mail email@example.com or call 01592 645 310.

Scotland's Inclusive Communication Hub
The Scottish Accessible Information Forum (SAIF) formed a Consortium to develop an Inclusive Communication Hub for Scotland. The Consortium contributed with their wealth of knowledge and expertise in the development of this Hub. The Scottish Government are now supporting SDEF, SAIF and Sense Scotland to take forward the development of this Hub during 2016.
The Inclusive Communication Hub will be the first of its kind for Scotland. This will be an easy to use online tool, for all who wish to be more inclusive with the information they deliver. Inclusive Communication is, quite simply, communication that is inclusive. It is an approach to communication which enables as many people as possible to access and engage with organisations.
We do our best to regularly update these pages, but if you are looking for a specific document or information and you cannot see it listed, or if you would like it in a different format, please contact the Equality Unit.
