To monitor equality, diversity and inclusion

We may ask you to provide us with your diversity data (ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation). This information is not used to make any decisions about you individually, but is for statistical purposes to help us understand who is living in our communities.  It helps us to ensure fairness and equality in the services we provide, and allows us to fulfil our legal and regulatory obligations.  You do not have to provide this information but it helps us if you choose to do so.
