Voluntary Action Shetland (VAS) is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for its employees, volunteers and people in need in the community to whom services are provided. This means that we at VAS will strive to prevent discrimination on the grounds of gender, age, marital status, race, sexual orientation, religion and disability in all we do including in the recruitment, selection, training and promotion of employees and volunteers, and in the provision of our services to the community.
