It is our policy to provide an inclusive environment to all, irrespective of:

We are fundamentally opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination including direct and/or indirect discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
This equal opportunities policy will be implemented across all aspects of the organisation’s work, including:
the appointment of members to its Board of Trustees
the appointment of staff members, their conditions of service and employment procedures
all forms of grant giving, should you meet the occupation, financial and situation criteria set by the charity
