Waltham Forest is a diverse borough where diversity is valued and is integral to both, service delivery and employment of staff. The Council is proud of its rich mix of communities and as the largest employer in the area, it works hard to respond to the changing needs of its population.

The Council is committed to meeting its 4 strategic outcomes contained in its Corporate Equality Plan:
• Promoting equality of opportunity

• Ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels
• Providing fair, appropriate, accessible and excellent services to all.
Respecting Diversity is a core Council value.
