Equality and diversity

Our commitment to equality, diversity and human rights

As both an employer and provider of health and care services across the South East, we take the issues of fairness, rights and equality seriously. We don’t just observe equality and diversity principles because we should, we do so because we strive to be a diverse and inclusive organisation. This is better for our teams and better for our clients.

We will continue to develop our staff and to strive to ensure accessible services for everyone in our communities.

Accessing health and care can be an unsettling experience and we want you to feel fully respected and valued.

We also recognise the value of our staff and their diversity and aim to ensure that our workforce is representative of the communities we serve. We understand that colleagues work better when they can be themselves and appreciate the quality, understanding and experience that they bring to our organisation.

We are consistently looking for opportunities to engage with our communities, to help us to plan and deliver services in a fair and equitable way.
