We are a diverse organisation, c31% of our staff identify as BME, c12% as LGBT+. We span the generations with c11% of staff being aged 18-24 and 25% aged 55-64. And, c11% of staff identify as having a disability.

Our staff, volunteers and service users have taken time to reflect on who we are and what we do when we are at our best. This reflection showed that we can proudly claim to be:

Generous by sharing our skills, creating energetic positive links, and thriving together

Rooted by being secure in our communities, participating and nurturing a sense of belonging
