Our equality and diversity policy
Our vision is a society where everyone enjoys a good later life. What we do is rooted in what matters to people as they prepare for and experience later life. We will work across sectors and boundaries and listen to and act on the voices of those we are here to help.
Discrimination or unequal treatment on the grounds of age or other protected characteristics, can and often are factors in preventing people having a good later life. Our work will highlight this and promote the best evidence of what works in addressing, for example, the impact of ageism in the workplace that could lead to unequal treatment.
- We will listen, consult and learn from diverse groups of people with lived experience, and this will inform our work. Many elements of our work will include solutions co-designed by diverse groups of people.
- As an employer, we are committed to equality and valuing diversity within our staff team, board, co-optees, associates and advisors. We will ensure that recruitment and service provision is monitored and that positive action is taken based upon such information. We’ll provide training and development activities that enable equality of opportunity and which promote an awareness of equality and diversity. We will also ensure that our premises and resources are made as accessible as possible to staff and visitors.
- In our procurement processes we will ask suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to equality and diversity in their policies and practises.
