Equality and inclusion in the workplace
We are committed to promoting equal opportunities across everything we do, in terms of employment and training, providing services and our engagement and decision making. We welcome diversity and look for self-motivated, enthusiastic people from all backgrounds who care about making a difference.
We aim to:
- celebrate and encourage the diversity of our workforce
- create a working environment where everyone feels included and appreciated for their work
- promote and provide our training and employment opportunities without regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other aspect of a person’s background
- encourage creativeness and innovation, to ensure that each member of staff can give of their best and help us move forward with our equality and inclusion goals.

We have also joined Stonewall’s Health Champions programme, receiving free advice and expertise on health services from the gay equality charity.
We published our gender pay gap data – which shows the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation – at the end of March 2018. This is different from equal pay, which looks at the pay difference between men and women who carry out the same jobs, similar jobs or work of equal value.
