A diverse workforce

We are committed to making sure we give equal opportunities to everyone in our employment.

We need a workforce which reflects the community we serve to make sure we provide appropriate services to all our diverse communities.

We work hard to make sure we do not unfairly discriminate against any job applicant or employee for any reason. We want our work environment to be free from harassment and bullying, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.


We will use positive action to put right past inequalities in the workplace. Examples of this include our:

  • Disability Confident Employer Scheme
  • Apprenticeship Development Programme

As a disability confident employer, we are committed to:

  • challenging attitudes towards disability
  • increasing understanding of disability
  • removing barriers for disabled people and those with long-term health conditions in employment
  • making sure disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.

Actions we are taking to maintain these commitments include:

  • making sure our job application process is fully accessible
  • guaranteeing an interview to all disabled people who meet the essential criteria for an advertised job role
  • ensuring that reasonable adjustments are made for disabled staff when they start work
  • providing support for disabled staff, using our health and safety team, ICT service, occupational health, disability leave scheme, Access to Work and Fit for Work service
  • inviting disabled staff to join our Disabled Staff Forum for ongoing support and engagement on the development of staff policies and processes.
