East Sussex Community Voice (ESCV) is committed to putting equality of opportunity at the heart of our work.
These principles are set out in our organisational Equal Opportunities Policy, which you can access below.
- value the talent, needs and desires of all members of the community
- employ principles of equity and fairness in consultation and community engagement
- promote good relations between all sections of society
- tackle institutional factors and behaviour that inhibit equality of opportunity in employment and the recruitment of volunteers and equitable service delivery.
We aim to develop and maintain a workforce and volunteer base with a broad range of skills and experience that reflect the needs and interests of our community. Our policies are designed to ensure that we make the most of the diverse experiences, skills and talents of everyone living and working in East Sussex.
To support our commitment, we undertook two activities during 2022 to help us understand the make-up of our board, staff and volunteers, as well the socio-demographic and equality characteristics of those who have applied to work for us. The information will be used to inform our organisational approach towards recruiting, retaining and developing a diverse and skilled group of people.
ESCV will continue to regularly monitor (on an anonymised basis) the characteristics of those who work and volunteer for us.
