Equal Opportunities Policy of
Drug and Alcohol Action Programme Ltd (DAAP)
DAAP is a registered charity.
Empowering communities against addiction
EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES STATEMENT
We believe that every individual should be treated with dignity
We believe that people should have the opportunities, support and
encouragement to exercise control over their own lives and acknowledge
their responsibilities to other.
Drug and Alcohol Action Programme Ltd. works to advance the education
of all sections of the community about aspects of substance misuse
and related issues. In particular we work towards eradicating addiction
by and through education; by developing and managing culturally appropriate
programmes and treatment services and by conducting appropriate research
on addictive behaviour. DAAP seeks to represent the views and concerns
of individuals and communities affected by substance misuse.
DAAP will promote predominately, but not exclusively, for minority
ethnic communities, issues relating to substance misuse, in particular
alcohol and drug addiction. This is in recognition that many Black
and minority ethnic communities do not have appropriate access to
drug and alcohol education or services.
Drug and Alcohol Action Programme is an equal opportunities employer
and seeks to promote equality and diversity in all its functions.
We believe that discrimination on the grounds of an individual’s
lifestyle, culture, beliefs, ethnic origin, colour, religion, gender,
sexuality, disability, age, social or economic status contravenes
the fundamental human right of individuals to determine their own
options and choices and to achieve their full potential.
Our commitment to equality and diversity relates to the management
of the organisation, our relationships with external organisations,
service provision, employment and training of staff and volunteers.
DAAP expects trustees, consultants, employees, volunteers and all
agents that act on its behalf to adhere to the letter as well as to
the spirit of this statement and to operate within the law.
