Lay Diversity Adviser Scheme
An introduction to the Lay Diversity Adviser Scheme
The Lay Diversity Adviser Scheme offers opportunities for people with the relevant knowledge and expertise to play a vital role in influencing police activities, critical incidents and policy development that impact equality and diversity, together with the regular monitoring of hate crimes. It also helps uphold and encourage public confidence by scrutinising police activities that have a direct influence on people with protected characteristics and issues that affect their communities.
The Scheme aims to cover the nine "protected characteristics" required by the Equality Act 2010: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race (which includes colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin); religion or belief; sex and sexual orientation.
