NFCC publish Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

The National Fire Chiefs Council's (NFCC's) People Programme is pleased to publish the NFCC Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Plan. The Strategy complements NFCC's People Strategy 2017-2022 and the NFCC Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Position Statement

The vision of the NFCC strategy and plan is to support Fire and Rescue Services in their work towards inclusive workplaces and services by assuring diversity and inclusion is designed into everything they do, whether that is service delivery, people development or future innovation. Although there are many areas of good practises within FRSs, we know we can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of our response, protection, and prevention services by:

  • Using the benefits of diversity to better understand the communities we serve
  • Promoting cultures of dignity and respect with the public and within our workforces so that engagement may flourish, making us more flexible, innovative and create environments where people feels valued.

We will continue to work with the Home Office and external key partners to ensure there is alignment, transparency and consistency in the work we will deliver.
