We define diversity as four fold: values, emotional, identity and physical characteristics, and others are emotional such as behaviour and style. Invisible difference includes values such as integrity and a way of life, and identity – also invisible – includes gay and lesbian and social class.

Inclusion is about equal opportunities for all people no matter what their differences are. There will be a lot off differences such as: age, race, gender, disabilities, sexuality and background. Discrimination is where people are picked out for being different such as having their sexuality calling somebody gay for liking the same sex. 1.2 Deliberate discrimination may happen when people are being treated differently because of their religion, race or having a disability.

These can range from race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, or any other identity defining beliefs and characteristics. In a care setting, diversity means understanding that these differences can affect, or even determine the care needs of an individual. For example, a service user who has poor mobility would need assistance to mobilise around the home, with the type of assistance varying depending on how poor their mobility is, whilst another service user who is independently mobile would not need any assistance. Equality is about everyone being treated fairly, however it does not mean we treat everyone the same.
