Our Values

As a values-driven charity we are always working to include our values: Vibrant, Ambitious, Supportive, Inclusive, and Open, in every aspect of our work and expect our Trustees, Elected Officers, staff and volunteers to live these values every single day.

Work Environment

We encourage enquiries from everyone and value diversity for our employees. We are willing to consider flexible working arrangements and invite you to talk to us if you wished to consider a variation on the hours advertised.

We champion equal opportunities, equality and dignity in the workplace, making this a safe environment to work in. We want to foster a supportive and diverse work environment for our employees which is able to respond to the needs of individual employees and the collective voice of the employee team via the Staff Wellbeing Committee. We are committed to allocating funding towards the development of our team ethos through events and activities as well as celebratory occasions and informal gatherings.
