      Building a diverse workforce

      We want our workforce to truly reflect the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the people we exist to support.

      We recognise that we need to continue to adapt in terms of who we are as an organisation, how we support the mental health of those of us from marginalised or minority communities, and how we acknowledge and challenge discrimination more widely.  

      We're working hard, listening and learning, and investing in building an inclusive organisational culture.
