Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Friends of the Elderly strives to treat all staff equally and be a diverse and inclusive workplace, where everyone can be themselves and everyone accepts each other’s differences. A charity where everyone is equal but definitely not the same.

Our ambition is to ensure equality and celebrate diversity, all working together to create an inclusive workplace, which attracts and retains the best people. People that care and can make a difference.

We value all our staff, service users, volunteers and contractors and strive to respect everyone as individuals, understand their perspectives, and provide a supported workplace so that everyone can thrive.

We are committed to listening, learning, and improving our workplace and we ask all our staff to make a personal commitment to educate themselves; and engage in conversations with colleagues, so that we can all learn and share our stories and treat everyone equally.

We encourage everyone to call out any actions or behaviours not consistent with our values, and champion the rights of all our staff.

Recruitment checks

Keeping everyone safe is one of our core values and is central to everything we do at Friends of the Elderly. As a responsible employer we adhere to safe recruitment practices and all our staff are subject to background checking during the onboarding process, particularly when the role involves unsupervised access to our residents and clients. This involves criminal record checks (to the level appropriate for the role), reference checks, proof of qualifications, checking any gaps in employment and appropriate interview questioning.

Right to work in the UK

As a responsible employer we need to ensure that we prevent illegal working. Unfortunately, we are not able to sponsor overseas applicants without the right to work in the UK, and ask all candidates selected for interview to bring original documentation to prove their Right to Work in the UK. Copies of documentation will be taken for all candidates and stored securely and disposed of securely in accordance with our Privacy Notice.
