Supporting Diversity/Disability
An Inclusive Organisation

Action for Children are committed to promoting equality, valuing diversity and working inclusively, we uphold the principles in our behaviour and working practices – as an employer, as a service provider and as a campaigning organisation. We oppose all forms of discrimination and intolerance in the workplace and service delivery settings. We have a zero tolerance approach to bullying, harassment and victimisation and our aim is to break down all barriers of discrimination, prejudice, fear or misunderstanding.

Considering equality, diversity and inclusion issues helps us to:

  • Make sure our people policies and working practices are bias free and fit well with business excellence models and initiatives such as Investors in People.
  • Create working environments in which people from all backgrounds can work together harmoniously by combating prejudice, checking stereotyping and stopping bullying, harassment and undignified and disrespectful behaviour.
  • Develop an open and inclusive working culture.
  • Have a workforce that is more creative and innovative.
  • Inform the development of new or enhanced services, open up new service opportunities and improve market share. For example, supporting Local Authorities to improve the way they provide services to diverse groups of children, young people and their families within their communities.
