Our Trust believes that a firm philosophy drives any development for minority ethnic groups. This philosophy must be based on equality. Service users from the white, indigenous population have access to a range and choice of service provision, including specialist input. This choice and equality of service provision should also be available to everyone - including all minority groups.
Equality does not mean choice of the same service provision, but rather a service which will embrace both cultural and linguistic diversity, and one that is appropriate for these communities.

The data breakdown about age, gender and ethnic group can be found in the workforce data spreadsheet (displayed in the Workforce Data 2011 link).
Please note: Although the questionb is asked, staff are not obliged to disclose their disability, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, religion or belief so this data is difficult to capture.
