We treat all applications equally, however we actively encourage applications from people from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, people who identify as LGBT+, who have a disability, as well as those from a working-class background, as these groups are currently under-represented in the charity sector. Our aim is to become a truly inclusive organisation, with a workforce as diverse as the communities we serve.
