Equality Champions

Our Equality Champions programme seeks to promote and support inclusion, across the workforce at a local level.

Champions are those of us who want to actively assist in ensuring inclusion for all. Our aim is to have a network of Champions throughout the Trust from various backgrounds, roles and departments.

All we ask of our champions is ‘visibility’ in your work area and a local champion for inclusion by:

  • promoting an inclusive workplace and raising awareness of equality and inclusion within service areas helping to ensure the diverse needs of staff, patients and carers are met
  • raising awareness, informing and influencing change by sharing information with colleagues via regular team meetings and team briefs
  • acting as a conduit for information on equality issues and provide feedback to the central team
  • promoting good practice and ensuring a zero tolerance stand against all bullying and  harassment in the workplace
  • raising concerns about any behaviour that may undermine an inclusive workplace 
  • actively support and promote the Trust’s Equality Agenda and staff networks
