This commitment is reflected in our recruitment and selection procedures, training policies and supervisory and appraisal processes.

All our employees are trained in anti-discriminatory practice and working in ways that are non-judgmental and person-centred. We also train our staff to understand the discrimination that certain individuals from vulnerable groups in society may face, to enable them to act appropriately when providing support.
