Equality, Diversity And Inclusion Hub

Investing in People, Culture and Leadership by providing good practice guidance, tools and improvements at a national level for implementation locally.

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) has never been as important as it is right now to the future of our sector and our society.

2020 was a significant time for so many reasons: the global pandemic; the Black Lives Matter movement, and a real move to challenge unjust and exclusive cultures; and internally, our own State of Fire and Rescue report which clearly highlights how fire and rescue services need to act now to change our culture.

Equality, diversity, inclusion (EDI) is both internally and externally focused, making sure we have a sector where our people feel valued and able to be the best they can be in order to provide fully inclusive, accessible, efficient and effective services.

The NFCC EDI Hub has been established to look at ways of working across the sector, where services have made a difference to the way they deliver positive action, or have introduced different ways of working, and how these actions have made a difference.
