We are committed to improving our performance in the top 100 Stonewall Employers index and this is one of the council’s key equalities objectives in our Single Equality Scheme 2010-13. In 2011 we came 75th out of 378 leading employers in Britain and we hope to improve this year on year, despite increasing competition. We also subscribe to the Stonewall Education champions programme. In 2011 we were given 8th place in recognition of targeted work supported by local schools. The council was awarded City of Sanctuary status in March 2011 by the City of Sanctuary National Network, an organisation that is made up of representatives from 10 cities. Our new status recognises that services to refugees here are among the best in Britain.
