For one, human rights are attributed to us, solely for our nature of human being (Orend, 2002, p. 41). It is this very nature that affords every individual his or her own human rights. Secondly, there are things that ought or ought not to be done to or for every human being. Perry argues that what is good and what is bad for a particular human being always depends on some thing about them or about their context or situation (1997, p. 468). Yet, it can be said that such things as having dignity and rights to water and sanitation are universally good for human beings, while the act of being tortured or oppressed are universally bad for human beings.
If in society our actions went deeper than just acceptance of individual’s differences but welcomed them we can create an environment in which everybody feels valued. The meaning of equality is ensuring individuals or groups of individuals are treated fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, including areas of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age. Equality means that everyone is being treated the same, but different people have different needs so individuality should be taken into account. Equality is about making sure people are treated fairly and have access to equality of opportunity. Equal opportunities are safeguarded by the Equality Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1998.
Unit 203 1.1a Define what is meant by Diversity. Diversity is a variety of things. Each person is individual and we must recognise that individuality and do everything to help that person. This can include religion, sexuality, race, gender,age, physical abilities, anything that is different and we must take into account any of these things when trying to help or encourage people to do anything as this impacts on their individual needs. 1.1b Define what is meant by Equality This means that everybody has equal rights regardless of their backgrounds , knowledge, religion or any factors that make them different.
Inclusion: is to embrace all people regardless of race, gender, age, ability etc. its about recognising we are one although we not the same and to have a sense of belonging.

When it is used with equality it is about recongnising individual as well as group differences, treating people as indiviudals, and placing positive value on diversity. Equality - treating people in a way that is appropriate for their needs. Making sure people are treated fairly and given fair chances. Recognise their needs and that they are met in different ways.

Equality Equality is when everyone is regarded as the same regardless of individual factors; equality protects people from being discriminated against for being ‘different’. Discrimination in equality can happen in relation to a person’s race, sex, health, religion, family, age, politics, disability, culture, sexual orientation or beliefs. Equality is about a society that is fair where there is massive potential and opportunity. Equality isn’t about having the same income, the same size house or the same amount of wealth; it is about treating people fairly because not everyone can be extremely successful. Diversity Diversity is the ability to accept and respect an individual regardless of who they are and what influences their lives.
