Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Vertical composite image of close-up male and female eyes isolated on multicolored neon background.

We're committed to being an inclusive employer.

We're proud to say everyone has a place with us and welcome a wide range of experience, skills and abilities in our teams.

As part of our commitment, we're looking at all our people policies and procedures to ensure they are fair, transparent and support equality for all.

As well as this, we're forming an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Forum made up of team members across Estuary to look at how we work, and to make sure EDI is part of everything we do. This forum will work with internal teams and external stakeholders to ensure our work is meaningful, consistent and valued by every team member.

We're already planning to launch EDI champions, who will work with teams to raise awareness of EDI. We'll also be making more time for training in areas such as unconscious bias and promoting inclusion.

Our aim is that we represent and champion all areas of diversity, both within our teams and as an employer of choice.

We're 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 [pdf] 457KB is available to view

Our Equality and Diversity Policy is being updated. As soon as it's ready, we'll upload it to this page.
