Complete Questions on Equality and Diversity and Duty of Care.

1.1a Explain what is meant by:

• Diversity: Diversity means understanding that each individual is unique,
and recognising individual differences. These could be the difference of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs,
political beliefs, or other ideologies. If a service user is being discriminated because of their disability for example this could cause upset for them, they may also feel like they aren't treated the same as someone who doesn't have a disability.
1.1b • Equality: Treating someone equal to everyone else no matter what ace, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs,
political beliefs they have. Family may be effected by this to because if they are a different race then they may find they could get treated differently to.
1.1c • Inclusion: A sense of belonging: feeling respected, valued for who you are;   feeling a level of supportive energy and commitment from others. It could effect an individual because if they aren't included they may feel like they can't do their best.
1.1d • Discrimination:   treating a person or particular group of people differently, especially in a worse way from the way in which you treat other people, because of their skin colour, sex,   sexuality, etc. The individual could be effected by this. They may take to alcohol or drugs, or may form their own opinions on others, develop hatred for others, or withdraw from people.
