These standards are modified on the basis of need and not on the basis of practitioner preference. Applying the principle of equality requires practitioners to take an active stance to ensure systems, processes and practices do not unduly disadvantage those who receive the service, within my role this is staff, carers and the young people.

To understand equality it is necessary to understand that all individuals should have the same opportunities to achieve good outcomes. This approach is based around the starting point for all individuals being the same.
SHC33 – Promote Equality and Inclusion on Health, Social Care or Children’s and Young people’s Settings Explain what is meant by: Diversity Diversity is the valuing of our individual differences and talents, creating a culture where everyone can participate, thrive and contribute.

Promote equality and inclusion in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings SC2 Unit 10: 1.1 Diversity: The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. It includes knowing how to relate to those qualities and conditions that are different from our own and outside the groups which we belong to, but are present in other individuals or groups. Examples of the different characteristics are: age; culture; disability (mental, learning, physical); economic background; education; ethnicity; gender identity; language spoken; marital/partner status; physical appearance; race; religious beliefs; sexual orientation. Diversity is a commitment to recognising and appreciating the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique in a way that promotes and celebrates both individual and collective achievement. By valuing the variety and individual differences we can create a culture, environment and practises that respect and celebrate these for the benefit of society, organisations and individual.
Equality, diversity and rights * The meaning of the word equality is that all individuals have the same value but it still doesn't mean that they all should be treated in the same way. We as individuals need to value diversity. Equality is in the term that every individual has equal opportunities. In the health and social care settings and other work places have equal opportunities policy; this type of policy will create a level playing field in the work place so that the people are treated equally. * The meaning of the word equity means being fair.

It is about creating a culture and practices that recognise, respect, value and embrace difference for the benefit of everyone.

It is based on fair equal, and courteous opportunities to all individuals, it should include the principle of treating people with fairness. It should also create a way of life where people of all backgrounds can feel appreciated and valued, and should be well established in health and social care services. The word diverse means “varied and different” so “diversity” is about more than equality. It is about valuing variety and individual differences and creating a culture, environment and practices which respect and value differences for the benefit of society, organisations and individuals.
