ADEPT EDI charter

Category: Policy Papers Briefing Notes


ADEPT is committed to promoting a culture of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across its membership and beyond and part of this commitment we have published a new charter and set of actions.

As the representative body for local authority place directors, we recognise the inherent value of embracing EDI principles in all aspects of our work. The place sector has traditionally lacked diversity and we understand there is a journey ahead, during which we need to remain realistic but also strive to create real and lasting change.

Local authorities are organisations that represent their places. It is crucial they reflect the diversity of their communities in order to effectively fulfil their responsibilities and deliver the best outcomes for all their residents.
