“Becoming a volunteer was a highly rewarding process. I felt like I had really achieved something once I completed the training, which I hadn’t felt in a long time”
Diversity, Equality, Inclusion
Working in such diverse parts of London as Southwark and Lewisham, makes us especially focused on DEI - for everyone involved in Home-Start Southwark's mission it is more than policies, programmes or headcounts. To provide more suitable support for both families and volunteers, it is essential to better understand our local community and its character, earn deeper trust from the families, gain more commitment from the volunteers.
And we do it all by applying DEI principles in our day-to-day processes.
By joining Transformational Leadership Programme, designed by Impact on Urban Health, Inclusive Boards and Do It Now Now, Home-Start Southwark is committing to strengthening its DEI strategy and weakening the link between race, gender or physical/mental abilities and access to opportunities and prospects in Southwark and Lewisham.
