Principles

  • At Neath Port Talbot Council ‘equality’ lies at the heart of everything we do. Equality means understanding and tackling barriers so that everyone has a fair chance to fulfil their potential.
  • The Council is committed to practices that protect adults and children from harm regardless of age, sex, disability, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or any other protected characteristic as covered by the Equality Act 2010.
  • Every child and adult has a right to participate in a safe society without any violence, fear, abuse, bullying or discrimination.
  • Every child and adult has the right to be protected from harm, neglect, exploitation and abuse.
  • All councillors, employees, volunteers and all those who carry out work for or with the Council have a responsibility for protecting children and adults at risk from abuse and neglect and working in a way that promotes and supports their best interests.
  • The Council will invest in preventative and early intervention services and endeavour to prevent situations arising where abuse, neglect or harm may occur.
