Our Inclusion pledge is to ensure our organisation, and how we approach and undertake our work, includes diversity of thought, and that inclusion is embedded into our culture. 

We try to support as many local, regional and campaigns as possible - Pride Month is one of these. 

Here is some information about local events and services available for everyone.
