Equality

Sue Lambert Trust is committed to equal opportunities in employment and service delivery. We will take every step to ensure that no person working with the organisation or seeking employment with us, or anyone using our services; will receive less favourable treatment or will be disadvantaged by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable on the grounds of their age, disability (including mental health), gender identity, gender expression, trans status, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, ethnic origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. We will also not discriminate on the grounds of trade union membership or political activities, socio-economic status, responsibility for dependents, part-time status or fixed-term contract status or any other reason which cannot be shown to be justified. Selection criteria and procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure that individuals are selected and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. Our aim is that our workforce will be truly representative of all sections of society. Everyone should feel respected and valued and able to achieve their full potential.

Diversity

Sue Lambert Trust takes pride in being a diverse organisation, enriched by the participation of all individuals. We recognise that prejudice and discrimination continue to result in unfair treatment for many people. We are committed to addressing this by: ensuring the effectiveness of our Equality and Diversity policy being clear and open about our values and promoting them listening, learning and taking action to bring about change.
