SHEP Training Programme Equality Statement

The Social and Health Education Project will respect at all times the dignity and equality of all persons and will endeavour to always be an inclusive, welcoming training project which embraces diversity.

SHEP will treat all our learners equally, regardless of gender, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, race, or membership of the Traveller community.

We do this by complying with the Equality Legislation, and by promoting within the project an environment where racism, sexism and all other forms of discrimination are unacceptable and seen to be unacceptable.

SHEP will also develop policies, programmes, curricula, practices and traditions that facilitate Learners’ free, safe and full participation in the project.

SHEP also operates a number of supports to promote equality of access, including concessionary rates (where possible) and reasonable accommodation for people with disabilities.

*SHEP also has an organisation-wide Equality Statement.
