Discrimination and Diversity Policy
Creating a sense of shared belonging for all is at the heart of our mission. We are proud of our diverse and global community and without it, we all wouldn’t experience the joys and benefits of Lodga.
Discrimination is not welcome at any of Lodga’s home away from homes. We are firmly committed to equal opportunities and working towards one global, inclusive world.
It is illegal to discriminate against someone if you’re letting a room (or whole property) based on:
Race (including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin)
Pregnancy and maternity
Religion or belief
Age isn’t protected when it comes to property so it isn’t illegal to discriminate based on age.
It’s not just about the law, Lodga has a zero tolerance for discrimination approach. If you are found to be discriminating, you will be immediately removed from the platform. We ask all Lodga users to understand each others differences; something which is essential in building a sense of belonging and a home where everyone feels welcome. It’s about treating people as you’d like to be treated and enjoying this life in harmony.
A note on guide dogs:
Guide dogs are working animals – their owners rely on them for independence and mobility and therefore it is not a pet. Guide dog owners and other blind or partially sighted people have the same rights when renting property as anyone else. Landlords and agencies have a duty to make reasonable adjustments and an existing ‘no pet’ policy cannot apply to a guide dog.
