Saffron Walden Town Council condemns inequality

Saffron Walden Town Council condemns inequality in all its shapes and forms.  The Town Council is committed to ensuring that our community is free from discrimination of any kind. 

Cllr Heather Asker, Saffron Walden Town Mayor, writes:

“Recent international and national events have highlighted that discrimination still exists for BAME communities. Nobody should ever have to face discrimination for any reason.   Saffron Walden Town Council is fully committed to treating everyone in our town fairly and with respect, as endorsed through the Council’s Equal Opportunities Policy.  The Council would like to assure all residents that we will not tolerate discrimination as an employer or in services we deliver. Our frequent flying of our rainbow flag over the town hall is a mark of solidarity and support for important causes.”

Saffron Walden Town Council praises the display of kindness, inclusivity and thoughtfulness shown by so many during the current Covid-19 pandemic and seeks to build upon this through its programme of community activities and volunteering.  Unfortunately, a number of Town Council volunteering opportunities are currently suspended but further details will be released on our website once these services are reinstated.
