Our Commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We recognise that people from some backgrounds are under-represented in our workforce and across the wider Charity sector. In April 2021 we launched our ambitious three-year EDI strategy committing to becoming a more inclusive workforce, reflecting the diverse communities that we work with and for and demonstrating this through all our areas of work.

A more diverse workforce will enable us to deliver even more impact and we particularly encourage applications from communities which are under-represented in the charity. This includes people from Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority backgrounds, people with a disability, people who are LGBT+ or who are from less advantaged socioeconomic groups.
