Equality and Diversity

As organisations and individuals nationally are being asked to pause and reflect on their diversity and equality the Trust is also responding to this call and embracing the opportunity. 

Over the next weeks the Trust will be examining its values and beliefs with regard to diversity, equality and inclusion of minority groups in the work that we do towards our charitable purpose of the furtherance of occupational therapy. This will also include looking at how our values align to our actions in the support we offer, how we are perceived by minority groups and how accessible we are to those individuals. We will update this webpage with our progress on this important work over the coming weeks. 

If you would like to share your experience of us, in confidence, please email Pam at secretary@elizabethcasson.org.uk or Dee at chair@elizabethcasson.org.uk

Case Studies

“This conference has been an excellent opportunity to keep abreast of best practice across the many services that my team are involved with. I have already been able to put some of this new knowledge to use and have plans to do more in the medium and long term. From a strategic perspective the knowledge that I have gained has been influential on my thinking for the future direction of the department and will greatly assist with our goal of knowledge transfer to our community colleagues.”
