Our Diversity Statement

Our organisation is made up of people of all ages and walks of life who work side by side to strengthen communities and enable those we support to become the best that they can be.

As an employer, we welcome applications from people who have the right skills, knowledge and experience regardless of personal characteristics including ability, age, cultural background, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender expression or identity, ideology, income, nationality, or sexual orientation. Our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility are demonstrated by and to our people in all that they do.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer, which values diversity and strives to enable each and every employee to reach their full potential. We actively seek feedback from our people in order to identify improvements and move forward.

We recognise that we need to lead with equity, and work with all of our partners to identify and remove barriers which may prevent some people within our communities from thriving, whilst ensuring that each individual can access the individual support they need.

We promote and encourage inclusion, ensuring that we encourage and enable a diverse leadership and management team and uphold standards through training and management actions to ensure that people feel welcome and included. We are committed to helping to support and develop generations of change-makers who will create better and more inclusive communities.
