Diversity and equality

We deliver equality through homes, support and opportunity, supporting vibrant communities and better lives for all.  

We make sure that equality and diversity is reflected in all that we do and we constantly look for opportunities to make improvements to our service, our employment practices and the way our organisation is run. 

We foster an inclusive and diverse workforce where development and reaching your potential is actively encouraged. We want to attract, recruit and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce to give us the best opportunity to meet the diverse needs of the community we serve with our residents and customers.

We are committed to making sure our Board and our staff reflect the communities we work in. We make sure that the contractors we partner with have an equally strong commitment to diversity. We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion within our organisation and the communities we serve.
