We currently have three Affinity Groups running at the charity, which are open to any member of staff. These are the Working Parents and Carers Network, REACH (Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage) Network, and Spectrum (LGBTQ+ affinity group). Hear from group members and find out more about the affinity groups by watching the videos below.
All of our staff are really invested in the work that we do...and there is a real sense throughout the charity that people genuinely care about each other.
In August 2021, we were accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at the charity receive a minimum hourly wage of £10.90 in the UK or £11.95 in London. Both rates are higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £10.42 per hour. Find out more about the Living Wage here.
The biggest positive of flexible working for me has been the opportunity to explore different interests and learn new skills whilst also being able to do a job I really enjoy and work for an organisation I really value. I think that’s very rare and I feel very lucky!
