Equality and diversity
South Tyneside Homes is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) as an employer and as a provider of services to tenants and residents in South Tyneside.
Equality is about making sure that everyone has the same opportunities to achieve the same or similar outcomes. It is not about treating 'everyone the same' but recognising that 'one size doesn't fit all' and that services should be tailored to meet individual needs.
Diversity is about respecting, valuing and celebrating people's differences.
Inclusion is about making sure that people feel comfortable to be themselves, that they belong and can reach their full potential without disadvantage or discrimination.
EDI is fundamental to the way we 'we do things' at South Tyneside Homes. We aim to positively embrace and celebrate diversity and promote an inclusive culture in our role as an employer and a provider of homes and services.
We acknowledge that everyone is different, and that people have different needs and perspectives. Everyone brings their own contribution, experience, skills and knowledge to make STH a successful organisation.
