Mental Health Trust makes Top 50 employers list

Top 50 InclusiveAvon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust is delighted to have been named as one of the Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers.

The Trust, which provides inpatient and community-based mental health care for people living in Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon and Wiltshire, has been ranked at number 36 in the list.

This is an improvement in the position in 2017 when it was ranked in 45th place.

Chief Executive for AWP, Dr Hayley Richards, said: "I am delighted that the Trust has improved its position from 2017. We have been working hard to ensure that equality, inclusion and diversity are at the centre of everything we do.

"This week we signed the Bristol Equality Charter and in July this year we were awarded a bronze award from the Employer's Network for Equality and Inclusion (ENEI), demonstrating that we value our work to create an inclusive and fair working environment.

"We strive to treat our staff and service users, carers and families as individuals, respecting and promoting their rights, equality and dignity and this recognises the progress we are making in our work."

The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers is a list of UK based organisations that promote inclusion across all protected characteristics, throughout each level of employment within their organisation.

Representing the promotion of all strands of diversity including Age, Disability, Gender, LGBT and Race, the list highlights many different organisations across various different sectors.

The Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers, empowered by The Excellence in Diversity Awards, is a dynamic and exclusive resource that is very much needed in order to identify who the true leaders of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion are.
