Diversity recognise that though people have things in common with each other they are also different and unique in many ways. Diversity is about recognising and valuing those differences.
EQUALITY-to treat everyone the same treated equality. To ensure no one is being given special treatment to another person. To treat people in a way that is appropriate for their needs.
INCLUSION- to ensure everyone is included. No one is left out or felt left out. All decision making to be all members. To ensure that all parties are felt included.

1.3 Working in an inclusive way helps support equality and diversity as it gives everyone a chance to show their individual differences but at the same time being equal. It’s important to do this so everyone feels included a sense of well-being that their opinion is valued. 2.1 Equality act 2006 (employment) religion or belief – it is unlawful to discriminate against people at work because of their religion or belief. Human rights act 1998 – covers many different types of discrimination some that are not covered by laws themselves Heath and social care act 2008—this act established the CQC who protect and promote the right of people using health and social care services they regulate the provision. Mental capacity act 2003—to protect anyone who has mental health condition.
3.3 Without a doubt I would challenge any kind of discrimination of a service user. I would ensure the service user is alright and speak to the person who is doing this. I would always have a 3rd party present for the safety of both parties. a written report to be made by both parties which would be given to the manger where further investigations would take place. Maybe handed over to H.R and developments happen from there i.e. suspensions, warnings, dismissal….
