Social inclusion is generally seen as a description of activities aimed at removing barriers such as discrimination, isolation, poverty and fear to enable individuals and communities to fully participate in civil society. 1.1 Explain models of practice that underpin equality, diversity and inclusion in own area of responsibility In my role as a Care Coordinator I have a responsibility to ensure that service users, their families, friends and staff members and other professionals I’m working with, are treated equally.

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. The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect. Staff that work in care settings must value diversity, and not give favourable treatment to certain groups of people at the expense of those whom they hold prejudice. Understanding equality and diversity is vital if we want to deliver person centred, safe and effective care. Delivering on equality and diversity in health and social care services means that we are tackling barriers that could prevent some groups of people from accessing
P1- In this assignment I am going to explain the concepts of equality, diversity and rights in relation to health and social care. Equality- In our community centre, equality is really important as we want to ensure there are equal opportunities for all and it is important that we make sure everyone has equal access to all facilities. Equality is important in ensuring treatment is fair and equitable, by this I mean people should be treated fairly and receive what they require; this means the community centre should provide adequate services for all people. Overall equality is important to the centre in ensuring that everyone receives equal access no matter whether they have a social or physical disadvantage. We must ensure that we are not marginalising against the people at the centre, this means that if people are from poor backgrounds we are providing services which are appropriate and that we are still providing equally to that of others in the centre.
SHC 23: Introduction to equality and inclusion in health, social care or children’s and young people’s settings Marcia Barreto de Melo 1. Understand the importance of equality and inclusion. 1.2 Explain what is meant by: Diversity: Diversity means difference, in general people have things in common with each other but they are also unique and different in many ways no one is the same. We can find two types of diversity, the visible (e.g race/ethnicity, age , religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation …) and invisible ( e.g. thinking, styles, socio-economic level, education, values, beliefs…) Is of paramount importance to create an environment in which everybody feels valued.
Unit 303 Outcome 1 1.1 Diversity means difference. Being understanding and aware of diversity is important in every workplace and especially in a social care setting. Diversity requires people in the setting to be accepting and tolerant of different views, different cultures, different cultural backgrounds, different ethnic origins and different lifestyles. Equality means treating people fairly, equally and no less favourably than another person. In the workplace, everyone should receive fair treatment and respect without regard for race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age.

Differences can be realted to Gender,Ethnicity,Social background, Cultural background, Race, Religion or Disabilities. Equality Means treating everyone in society fairly and equally. This does not necessarily Mean treating people as the same, but as individuals whose opportunies will be as good as those experienced by other people.
Unit 6 D2 The effectiveness of Legislation and Code of practice or Charter in promoting diversity A human rights based approach adds practical value to equality and diversity work in a number of ways, including: Greater protection against discrimination: Human rights belong to everyone; the Human Rights Act therefore provides important protection for groups who may face discrimination or poor treatment but are not covered by existing equality legislation, for example carers, homeless people, asylum seekers. Protection against universally bad treatment: If everyone is being poorly treated without distinction, this will not qualify as discrimination for example if all residents at a care home are being mistreated by staff. The Human Rights Act can be used to address this kind of situation by judging poor treatment against a fixed standard, rather than requiring a victim to show they are being poorly treated in comparison to others. Protection against other forms of ill-treatment: Disadvantaged groups may face forms of ill-treatment besides discrimination. The Human Rights Act goes beyond discrimination, providing a minimum standard below which public authorities must not go.
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. There are so many ways in which people differ from each other ssuch as: Appearance, Ability, Gender, Race, Culture, Talent, Age and Beliefs. Equality Equality is a legal framework to protect against discrimination, promote equality of opportunity and foster good relations between people with 'protected characteristics. It is very important that everybody is treated equal and the same. Inclusion Inclusion, this is the total opposite of discrimination and I think it means to be fully included, to make people feel valued and respected irrespective of ethnicity, gender, disability, medical or other need, culture, age, religion and sexual orientation.

This means that it may need to be made in a different approach to the individual. The care worker will need to be aware that each individual has their own ways of interpreting what is said.
