We are committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive organisation and ensuring that we harness the talents of all our staff fully. One of the ways we wish to support this is through the development of specific staff networks that contribute to addressing and solving problems for all under-represented and disadvantaged groups and individuals within our organisation.
Membership is open to anyone within an interest in promoting inclusion and helping promote positive change.
Cultural diversity staff network
Cultural diversity staff network actively engages and contributes towards ensuring equality, acceptance and inclusion within the Trust.
Disabled staff network
The disabled staff network actively engages and contributes towards ensuring equality, acceptance, and inclusion within the Trust.
LGBT+ staff network
The aim of the LGBT+ network is to promote a working environment where all LGBT+ staff feel supported, valued and to challenge discrimination.
We also have a number of staff support groups which are open to any staff to attend.
Armed Forces and Veterans Staff Association
The group aims to ensure the Trust provides support to staff who are connected with the armed forces.
Mind, Health and Wellbeing Community
The group is a safe space for staff to come and talk about how their wellbeing is affected by work and how their wellbeing affects them at work too.
Menopause toolkit and cafes
The toolkit has been designed to support staff who are experiencing or are affected by perimenopause or menopause symptoms.
Staff Carer Support Group
The group supports staff who have family members or friends who have disabilities, mental health problems or additional needs.
