Equality, Diversity and Inclusion


Relate is committed to equality, diversity, inclusion and respect for all our staff, clients, customers and volunteers.

Our vision is a future where healthy relationships are actively promoted as the heart of a thriving society. As such we strive to ensure that the values and behaviours of equality, diversity, inclusion and respect are at the heart of everything we do.


As an organisation we have agreed three principles in our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion:


1. We are committed to tackling discrimination at all levels of society. This forms the equality element of our approach, and focuses on addressing unconscious bias in our services, understanding our profile via data analysis and monitoring, and impact assessing our decisions and activity.

2. We are committed to a diverse society. Diversity makes us stronger. We will do this through our culture and values as an organisation, being proactive in seeking out diversity to give us insight into what we don’t know.

3. We are committed to inclusion in society. We will do this by finding more ways to overcome exclusion – addressing accessibility and relevance of our services, and striving to remain innovative in finding new ways to reach more people.

Everyone in Relate has an individual responsibility to understand and promote this policy and work towards our vision.
