Equal Opportunities

 

The Homes Equal Opportunities Policy

Our Principles

We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for staff in our employment and residents who receive our services, and will abide by the following principles:

As an employer we accept the statutory requirements laid down in the Equalities Act 2010.

N

It is unlawful for an employer or employee to discriminate against or to treat an individual differently on the grounds of colour, race, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, belief or age. We will ensure that no one who applies for a job or staff employed by us receives less favourable treatment on any of these grounds.

N

We are committed to the active promotion of equal opportunity in our services, and we recognise that the achievement of equal opportunities will require the participation of all staff and a commitment to this policy.

We recognize and have a positive attitude to the colour, race, ethnic origin, marital status, nationality, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, belief or age of our residents.

When planning and delivering care to our residents, our staff will take into account the different and special needs of each resident.

Training

We will as part of our training programme ensure that staff are aware of their responsibilities in promoting and achieving equal opportunities.

ST – Tenbury

"Hendra House is a home from home, the description my Mum used. The staff are professional, patient, kind, caring and always welcoming to family and visitors alike. The home, rooms, facilities are spotlessly clean. The food is excellent. The menu varied with choices available. The residents feel loved and treasured."

AM – Ludlow

"It is always a pleasure to visit my grandad at Hendra House. All of the staff are friendly and welcoming and the house itself is beautifully clean and pleasant smelling. Grandad is happy, and content and I have peace of mind knowing that he is so well cared for."
