EQUALITY & DIVERSITY
The Equality Act 2010 brings together many separate pieces of legislation into one single
act. Combined, they make up a new act that provides a legal framework to protect the
rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all.
The Equality Act 2010 simplifies, strengthens and harmonises the current legislation
to provide Britain with a new discrimination law which protects individuals from unfair
treatment and promotes a fair and more equal society.
The protected characteristics are:
• Ethnic background
• Gender Reassignment
• Marriage/Civil Partnership
• Pregnancy and Maternity
• Religion or belief
• Sexual orientation
The Equality Act sets out the different ways in which it is unlawful to treat someone, such
as direct and indirect discrimination, harassment, victimisation and failing to make a
reasonable adjustment for a person with a disability.
Treating a person or particular group of people or person differently from others.
This is a negative judgment or opinion formed beforehand of a particular type of person or
Hatred or intolerance of another ethnic group or groups.
When people “label” a type of group or individual based on what they think the person or
people should be like.
Diversity aims to recognise, respect and value people’s differences to contribute positively
to our society and promote an inclusive culture for all.
We would very much appreciate your views on your learning experience and would love

What to do
If you are concerned about someone you know who may be displaying unusual
behaviours, they may be having problems at home or other personal issues, this could
mean that they could benefit from support.
What will those signs that someone needs help look like?
In truth they will look a lot like other troubling behaviour, so without worrying too much
about the reason for someone you know acting differently or in a strange way, think about
what behaviours would give you a reason to be concerned. It is usually as simple as a gut
feeling that a friend might be in need of some support or help.
So please talk to someone for support.
While the risk of someone being radicalised is very rare, it’s not one we can

Being mentally healthy doesn’t just mean that you don’t have a mental health problem.
We all have mental health!
If you’re in good mental health, you can:
• make the most of your potential
• cope with life
• play a full part in your family, workplace, community and among friends.
Some people call mental health ‘emotional health’ or ‘well-being’ and it’s just as important
as good physical health.
Common mental health difficulties include: Affects approximately
Mental health is everyone’s business. We all have times when we feel down or stressed or
frightened. Most of the time those feelings pass. But sometimes they develop into a more
serious problem and that could happen to any one of us.
Everyone is different, you may bounce back from a setback while someone else may feel
weighed down by it for a long time.
Your mental health doesn’t always stay the same. It can change as circumstances change
and as you move through different stages of your life.
There is sometimes a stigma attached to mental health problems. This means that people
might feel uncomfortable about them and don’t talk about them much. Many people don’t
even feel comfortable talking about their feelings. But it’s healthy to know and say how
you’re feeling. It is just as important to support those around you who maybe experiencing
a period of low mental health. If you or some you know is having difficulties with their
mental health go straight to your GP, a trusted professional or friend for support
