Equality and diversity

Diversity, equality and the right to fair treatment are just as important to us as they are to our residents and all of our customers.

We try hard to recognise, understand and adapt to individual differences, treat people the way they deserve to be treated, and make sure everyone has an equal opportunity to make the most of our services.

“To treat me equally you may need to treat me differently.”

As an example of how diverse we are as an organisation, we recently recruited four young people via the Future Jobs Fund and three of these went on to join our Neighbourhood Environment Action Team (NEAT). We’ve also arranged a number of work experience placements in partnership with local schools and asked an apprentice to join our Finance Team.

Last year we recruited four young people via the Future Jobs Fund – three of these young people went on to gain permanent employment with us

And all that’s just for starters – read more about our people and values, and about the range of employment opportunities on offer here at SYHA.

If you would like to know more about our equality policies and diversity guidelines then you read through them in detail in our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.
