Equal Opportunities

Equal Opportunities

We value the unique experience that every individual can bring to our organisation. What would you expect from an organisation that revolves around helping people to achieve their potential?

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Changing Lives exists to support people facing the most challenging of circumstances to make lasting changes in their lives. We work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and identities, many of whom experience discrimination - in some cases, it has led to or contributed to their struggles, and in others, they are discriminated against because of their challenging circumstances. Supporting people facing discrimination is a fundamental part of how we work.

We are committed to making Changing Lives an inclusive organisation, which enables all of our employees and everyone who uses our services to reach their full potential, no matter their background. We are listening to people inside and outside of our organisation, challenging ourselves and taking action where we need to, to make sure that our culture is one that feels welcoming, positive and supportive for everyone.

We ask new employees to our organisation to complete an equal opportunities monitoring form. This is anonymous and voluntary, however, the information we ask for goes towards helping us ensure we are an inclusive employer by monitoring diversity in the workplace. We want our services, staff teams and leadership to reflect the communities in which we work so that we have the right mix of skills, knowledge and experience so that we are open and relevant for people who need our services and so that we can help in the most effective and creative ways.
