An Explainer at Kensington Palace

At the heart of our Cause is the challenge to help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society in some of the greatest palaces ever built. That means we are continually looking for ways to improve access and diversity - in the visitors we attract, the staff we employ and the services we provide.

Access and diversity

To achieve this we have developed a Single Equality Scheme which covers the areas of disability, gender and race and describes how we are going to promote equality and diversity in everything we do.

To eliminate unlawful discrimination and promote equality, ‘equality duties’ were introduced for public sector institutions. The first of these was the race equality duty, introduced in 2001. This was followed by the introduction of the disability equality duty in 2006 and the gender equality duty in April 2007.

Our Single Equality Scheme

Our scheme shows what we are doing to meet these duties and how we can bring equality to other areas, including religion or belief, age and sexual orientation.
