Equality and Diversity
We value inclusiveness and we are committed to embedding equality and diversity at the heart of our work.
We aim to be an inclusive organisation, where individual differences are respected, where staff, people who use services, as well as their families and carers, are treated with dignity and on the basis of their merits, abilities and needs, and where everyone has a fair opportunity to fulfil their potential without suffering discrimination or disadvantage.
We are signed up to the CIH Charter for Housing, which means we make a public commitment to deliver a fair and accessible housing service. The Equality and Diversity Charter for Housing [pdf] 2MB is available to view;
Our Equality Diversity Policy.pdf 211KB is also available to view.
The Mindful Employer symbol is displayed by employers who have signed the Mindful Employer Charter who wish to improve the working lives of their staff and willing to work towards better mental health practice.
We’re delighted to have been awarded level 2 Disability Confident Employer status by the Department of Work & Pensions.
More information on both of these schemes are available on the Awards and Accreditations section of our site.
