Equality initiatives

At the Trust, we are constantly thinking of new ways to engage with our diverse workforce and the local population.

We want to make sure that the service we provide meets with the needs of those we serve, and those who work within the Trust. We believe that this is not just a legal requirement but is genuinely important.

The Trust coproduces its equality action plans for staff with its employee network groups.  Staff are encouraged and supported to attend whichever group they feel interested in and anyone can be a member.

We highly value co-production in our quality improvement work and look to ensure that service users, carers and partners are involved as equal partners in improving our services. Service users, carers and partners have opportunity to work with us to co-produce, influence and shape our organisation at a strategic, operational and individual level. 

Co-production recognises that equality issues must be integral to service user and carer involvement. Co-production is designed to enable all individuals, groups and networks to become involved and celebrates different perspectives and experiences. Co-production principles of equality, diversity, accessibility and reciprocity are underpinned with our Trust values of Positively, Respectfully and Together.
