Diversity and Equality at Horsey Lightly

We have recently carried out an equality and diversity survey of our employees and from the anonymous data that has been provided by them (employees are free to decline to complete the survey or to choose “prefer not to say”) we have been able to conclude that they fall into the various protected characteristic types as defined by the Equality Act 2010 (sex, age, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, etc.).

Due to the risk of employees being identified through their anonymous data and reference to their staff profiles on our website we are unable to publish more specific details without breaching the Data Protection Act 2018

We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we provide then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance  we suggest that you should contact the person who is working on your  matter to discuss your concerns and he/she will do  their best to resolve any issues that you may have.. If you remain dissatisfied and wish  to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your matter.
