Age UK Bromley & Greenwich work with and for all older people, their families, carers and with partners, volunteers, supporters and staff. Our reputation and effectiveness depends critically on the contribution of people. For Age UK Bromley & Greenwich valuing Diversity goes beyond meeting legislation, it has a clear moral basis as our organisational beliefs reinforce the values of diversity. There is however a similarly compelling business case for valuing Equality and Diversity because we believe that embracing the skills, experiences and perspectives of a diverse group of people can enhance our effectiveness in pursuing the organisation’s purpose and objectives.
We are committed to developing and maintaining an organisation in which differing ideas, abilities, backgrounds and needs are fostered and valued, and where those with diverse backgrounds and experiences are able to participate and contribute.
We want to be sure that we are meeting our strategic principles, which include reaching all potential users including the growing ethnic minority community. We undertake strategic analysis of service provision and this helps us to address any unmet needs. We also ask questions relating to disability, gender, religion, and supplementary questions on dependent relatives and age as we wish to monitor all areas so that we can plan to meet the needs of the wider community and uphold our commitment to diversity.
