Equal Opportunities Policy

At the Rohingya Centre of United Kingdom (RCUK), we are dedicated to fostering equality, diversity, and inclusion throughout our organisation. We believe in treating everyone with fairness and respect, regardless of their background or characteristics protected by law.

Our Equal Opportunities Policy is a testament to our commitment to providing a supportive and inclusive environment where all individuals have equal opportunities to thrive and contribute.

Scope: This policy applies to all individuals associated with RCUK, including employees, volunteers, trustees, contractors, and service users. It governs all aspects of employment, from recruitment to termination.

Principles: We prohibit all forms of discrimination, harassment, and unfair treatment based on protected characteristics. Our commitment to equality of opportunity ensures that decisions regarding recruitment, selection, and promotion are based solely on merit. We prioritize accessibility, making reasonable adjustments to accommodate the needs of individuals with disabilities. Furthermore, we actively promote diversity within our workforce to enrich our work and foster creativity and innovation.

Responsibilities: Senior management leads the implementation and promotion of this policy, ensuring compliance with legal requirements and best practices. Managers and supervisors uphold equality and diversity principles within their teams, addressing any instances of discrimination promptly. All employees and volunteers are expected to familiarize themselves with the policy and treat others with dignity and respect.

Complaints Procedure: RCUK provides a safe environment for raising concerns related to discrimination or unfair treatment. Individuals are encouraged to report their concerns to their line manager, HR department, or senior management. All complaints will be investigated impartially, and appropriate action will be taken.

Review and Monitoring: We regularly review and update our Equal Opportunities Policy to ensure its effectiveness and relevance. Monitoring mechanisms are in place to assess its impact and identify areas for improvement.

Conclusion: RCUK is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work. By embracing diversity and adhering to this policy, we strive to create an inclusive environment where everyone can realize their full potential and contribute to our mission of making a positive difference in our communities.
