Our commitment to equality
Children and young people from marginalised backgrounds – including black and Asian children and young people and children who’ve been in care – are significantly overrepresented in the youth justice system. We’re committed to understanding and addressing this inequality.
We’ll make sure that our staff, our partnerships, our governance and our funding reaches and represents the children we are here to serve. We will work to make sure that our work reaches young people from all backgrounds. We will also strive to make sure that charities led by black, Asian and ethnic minority leaders access our funding and knowledge.
To make absolute sure of this, we will allocate £5 to 10 million over the next three years to fund black, Asian and minority-ethnic led charities that are working to prevent children and young people becoming involved in violence.
We know that it’s just a start, and there’s more we will do. We’re committed to continuing to work with you to make sure our funds, the knowledge we build and our work for change all work towards a society where every child can thrive.
Accessibility and Adjustments
We are committed to providing reasonable adjustments throughout our recruitment process and we’ll always endeavour to be as accommodating as possible. If you would like to discuss any specific requirements, please get in touch with Denise Kawooya at email@example.com.
