Sometimes in order to treat people equally you have to treat them differently. All people should be valued for their individuality and offered any support that they might need. Everyone should be treated with the care, consideration and respect that they have a right to and given the same opportunities to learn and achieve as others. Inclusion is a process to include everyone and meet individual needs. It is a human right for every individual.
Diversity This is when differences between peoples are accepted, and everyone is given respect for the values and beliefs they hold in society Rights These are the legal entitlements we have in society and an example would be the right to live in a society without any abuse being shown because of their gender differences. Opportunity This means everyone has similar chances in the various jobs they do. For example talking to the clients in a hospital. Overt Discrimination This is when discrimination is clearly shown openly. In health and social care terms would be they pay someone gets is more, or less, due to the gender group they belong to.
Diversity is a visible and non-visible thing. These could include personal characteristics that are also protected under discrimination legislation. By recognising each and everyone’s individual needs we are able to have a positive and productive working environment in which everybody will feel valued. Within my workplace we have to be aware of everybody’s Individual needs not just the staffs but also the Students that we teach and look after. As every child have their own needs.
We should never try and force our feelings onto others, an individual may feel upset and sad, it’s no good if we go to them all happy as it shows we don’t respect them, we should talk with them and find out if possible why they are upset and make them feel included. A person’s heritage and beliefs are a big part of their lives, it is what makes an individual unique, all of us have our own beliefs in what is right and wrong, acceptable or unacceptable eg. when to clean or change clothes. Religion has effects on the way a person lives, it is important to respect and honour their religion even if it’s not the same as my own, I do not go to church regularly even though I did when I

It is a human right for every individual.It means that everyone counts and differences should be valued, respected and celebrated.Inclusion involves identifying barriers that prevent people from taking part, being involved and fitting in. Knowledge is needed to understand these barriers which can only then be broken down. It is everyone’s responsibility to remove these barriers.
Principles of diversity equality and inclusion is adult social care. 1.1 Define what is meant by: * Diversity = Diversity means the understanding that every individual is unique and every individual has their own differences such as race, age, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion etc. * Equality – Equality means that every individual is treated equally and fairly, everyone has the right to have the same chances as everyone else in life no matter what race, age, gender etc they are * Inclusion – inclusion means ensuring everyone feels included, wanted and respected. No one should be left out or ignored because of their race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion etc. * Discrimination = means treating a person or group of people differently because of their race, age, sexuality, gender, ethnicity etc.
Person-centred values must apply at all times as it’s about the individuals and what they want. The way I notice that all individuals have their own likes and can make their own choices. The individuals need to have their own independence and are all different in their own ways and we have to respect this. We must respect their dignity and privacy as it is the individual’s right to be treated fairly at all times throughout no matter what. We must treat every individual the same regardless of any medical conditions, religions, culture and life style and deserves the same care and respect.
B- Equality Means that all people are to be treated alike and that they should have the same opportunities. Equality stands to embrace the positive aspects of diversity. Everyone should have the same rights and access to education, health care and opportunities for development. C- Inclusion Inclusion is to understand that people are different and to embrace it. It means that no one should be discriminated against because of his or her background.
Equality is about making sure that all people are treated fairly and are given fair choices and is NOT about treating everyone in the same way. In a health and social care environment it means that all individuals regardless of any differences or special needs, should have the same equal opportunities, and access to the same services, receive the same support, care and respect as any other individual. Inclusion: Valuing the diversity of all members of our society, we should promote the involvement of an individual in decision making and being included when discussing the choices in services and when planning the kind of support they want. Positively making sure that an individual’s needs are respected, and their beliefs have been considered. It is important that they feel they have been able to express their feelings and that they have personally participated in any discussions regarding their care plan for their needs.
By applying inclusive practice this will treat every child and their families as individuals, and will help in adapting to each individual needs. It is very important to understand that inclusion does not mean that we view each other the same or provide the same work, it is about making sure that we are making adaptations to each situation and to the particular activity, instead of making a child do a completely different activity. Like this we are making sure that we are giving each individual the same opportunity. Inclusive practice supports diversity by accepting and welcoming all kind of people in the society. Different approaches, manners and stratagems are applied in order to ensure that people are not secluded or excluded.
