In line with our value to be open, we commit to working with a diversity of people, organisations and stakeholders who we appreciate will bring us breadth of perspective, skills and experience. This in turn can help us deliver on our mission and our charitable objectives. We also appreciate everyone, no matter their background, should be able to fulfil their potential and we will work hard to ensure that we value diversity within the breadth of organisations we fund – and that this will be in terms of demographics, geography, structure. Our decisions will incorporate consideration about whether charity applicants are engaging and consulting with those who have lived experience and how this shapes their organisation and/or their work. We will recruit into both board and staff on a fair, impartial and equitable basis and adopt a participative approach to the development of our organisation and the decisions which we take.
