3 Discrimination Discrimination is when an individual or group of people are treated differently Usually prejudiced attitude leads to discrimination in some form People can be discriminated on the grounds on the following:

4 Race Colour Nationality Sexual Orientation Age Offending Behaviour Disability

5 Examples Crude racists remarks Subtle differences in assessments Expectation Provision of service Treatment

6 Direct Discrimination Direct discrimination is when someone treats people differently, either more favourably or less favourably, than others in the same or similar circumstances

7 Indirect Discrimination Indirect discrimination is more complex and may not be obvious at first Usually there are conditions that, although applied to all groups of people, will in effect favour the majority whilst considerably disfavouring a particular group

8 Unconscious Discrimination Being unaware that it ’ s happening Failing to be aware of different customs and religions Can be direct or indirect

9 Institutional Discrimination Takes place within organisations Affects individuals and groups May be direct, indirect or unconscious

10 Anti-discriminatory Practice Anti-discriminatory practice is behaviour demonstrated by people towards others that is conducive to equal or fair treatment Anti-discriminatory practice takes account of how we behave in terms of:

11 Use of language Advocating equality as we practice it ourselves Providing information on awareness about anti-discrimination Enabling the people we care for to exercise their rights and choices

12 Anti-discriminatory practice includes taking the opportunity to challenge discrimination. This may also mean challenging ourselves

13 Promoting Anti- discriminatory Practice: Striving for change Questioning decision makers Keeping up to date with current information on anti-discriminatory practice Applying this knowledge within the workplace

14 Information regarding what services are available, should be accessible to everyone How assessments and care plans are carried out should be accessible to everyone

15 Information should be available in appropriate form eg Braille, tapes, different languages Interpreters and signers should be available at the assessment stage and/or throughout the delivery of services
