Equality and Diversity Statement

St Mary’s Hospice Equality and Diversity Statement

At St Mary’s Hospice, we are committed to equal opportunities and recognising diversity in everything we do. This means that we seek to ensure anyone connected with St Mary’s, from patients and families through to donors, supporters, volunteers and staff are treated fairly, appropriately and with dignity and respect.

The Hospice intends to embed its equality and diversity values into everyday Hospice policies and procedures so that equality and diversity becomes the norm for all. Equality is not about treating everyone the same, it is about ensuring that access to opportunities are available to all by taking account of people’s differing needs and capabilities.
