Diversity and Inclusion

Recognising, embracing and valuing diversity.

St Anne’s ensures that employees of all backgrounds are treated with respect and contribute to our objectives as an inclusive organisation. We have developed our own Diversity and Inclusion Strategy to support employees of all ages, religious and cultural backgrounds as well as women, Black and Minority Ethnic, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) people.

Diversity and inclusion plays a vital role in our work and we want our workforce to be as diverse as the clients that we support. It is our policy to treat everybody fairly and we don’t discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, domestic circumstances, working pattern, trade union activity, mental health, HIV status, religion, nationality or class.

We want disabled, BME, Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans employees to succeed at St Anne’s and our policies and procedures ensure that this can happen.
