It can lead to stereotyping, causing the individual upset. It can also include harassment and leave the individual feeling isolated. 1.3 Inclusive practise is about the way a carer approaches an individual as well as their attitude to ensure that they are not exclude or isolated. The carer has to accept and encourage individuals differences. The individual needs support in developing a sense of well-being and confidence in their abilities 2.1 Key legislation and codes of practise relating to diversity, equality,
Indirect Discrimination may occur when employees are insisted to do night shifts as this could exclude those who have children to care for or by not making reasonable adjustments at work could exclude those employees with a disability. 1.3 Explain how practices that support diversity, equality and inclusion reduce the likelihood of discrimination. Practices that support diversity, quality and inclusion to reduce the likelihood of discrimination may include encouraging everyone to express their views and have them listened to which in turn helps us to respect and celebrate peoples differences, promoting good practice valuing their individuality enabling them to be fully involved not only in their own lives but everyone around
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.
It is about giving equal access and opportunities. 2.2 Describe the potential effects of discrimination. Being the victim of discrimination can negatively impact a person's emotional well-being and sense of self, especially if they experience discrimination on an ongoing basis due to an intrinsic characteristic of who they are as a person. People who are discriminated against may develop physical or mental health problems as a result of the discriminatory actions of others. 2.3 Explain the importance of inclusive practice in promoting equality and supporting diversity.
By recognising and understanding our individual differences and embracing them, and moving beyond simple tolerance, we can create a productive environment in which everybody feels valued. • Equality Equality can mean different things to different people, some people believe that equality means treating everyone the same. However you cannot treat everyone as equal due to different backgrounds, life experiences, skills and knowledge. So no two people are the same. Individuality can be a positive advantage in all aspects of life.
This might be by providing additional support or resources or by the activity taking place in a more accessible location or manner. By not including people or not recognising the benefits of diversity and therefore allowing discrimination to happen it could prevent an individual from taking part or not allowing them to take part equally. It may cause further effects on a wider scale if discrimination happens in certain ways, such as only allowing women to take part in an activity or prevent access to those that cannot use stairs. This could have knock on effects and influence and affect friends and family of those people that have been discriminated against, as they may then choose to boycott activities or locations based on the inequality of participation and access. By ensuring inclusive practice it allows anyone and everyone to participate in all activities and environments.
Inclusion involves making the individual the centre of their life, involving them in everything that is about them so they are actively involved in all aspects of their life, care and support. Discrimination Negative prejudges develop against people who are different in some way. Discriminatory behaviour results in unfair, unjust treatment. It could be done against those with a different ethnic background, religion, age,sex, nationality, ability,ﬁnancial status and size. 1-2 Direct discrimination may occurs when an individual is aware of what they are doing , and are acting in a purposeful way towards people without regard for equality.
Inclusion Is about involving everyone in society, making sure all have opportunities to work or take part in social activities even though they may have a disability. E.g. Mental health problems. Discrimination Is treatment of individuals or groups based on arbitrary inscriptive or acquired criteria such as sex, race, religion, age, marital or parental status, disability, sexual orientation, political opinions, socio-economic background, and trade union membership and activities. 2.
People can be good or bad irrespective of their family background. For example, ordinary decent families can and do have members of the family that behave badly: are violent, untrustworthy or nasty. Similarly, well-behaved individuals can have dishonest parents and siblings, and yet still be honest, virtuous and have a kind, generous disposition. The second reason why I believe that experience of life is the greatest and most influential factor in determining a person’s behavior is that the environment consists mainly of people, and it is in reacting to people and how people react to you that ultimately influences what kind of person you become. Meeting with nothing but kindness and generosity in one’s fellow man will most probably make you into a kind and generous person yourself.
