Friends of the Elderly strives to treat all staff equally and be a diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone can be themselves and everyone accepts each other’s differences. A charity where everyone is equal but definitely not the same!
Our ambition is to ensure equality and celebrate diversity, all working together to create an inclusive workplace, which attracts and retains the best people. People that care and can make a difference.
We value all our staff, service users, volunteers and contractors and strive to respect everyone as individuals, understand their perspectives, and provide a supported workplace so that everyone can thrive.
We are committed to listening, learning, and improving our workplace and we ask all our staff to make a personal commitment to educate themselves; and engage in conversations with colleagues, so that we can all learn and share our stories and treat everyone equally.
We encourage everyone to call out any actions or behaviours not consistent with our values, and champion the rights of all our staff.
Keeping everyone safe - As one of the charity’s core values, keeping people safe is central to everything we do at Friends of the Elderly. All staff follow our Safeguarding Policy & Procedure and, if they see or suspect abuse, we expect staff report it straight away.
