At Royal Trinity Hospice we are committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our workforce. Our aim is that our workforce will be truly representative of all sections of society and that all employees, volunteers, patients and visitors feel respected, and able to give of their best. We aim to create an environment in which individual differences, and the contributions of all our staff, are recognised and valued.

To that end the purpose of this policy is to provide equality and fairness for all, and not to discriminate on grounds of gender, gender reassignment, marital status (including civil partnerships), pregnancy or parental status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion, age. We oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

In order that we can monitor our success in meeting this commitment, we ask you to complete this equality and diversity monitoring form by providing information on your ethnic origin, whether you are affected by disability and also details of nationality. The information that you provide will be treated as strictly confidential and will not be used to assess your suitability for the post. The data is being requested for monitoring and statistical purposes only and to assist us in meeting statutory and other obligations.
