Equal opportunities

Equal opportunities

We are an equal opportunities employer.

Our policy covers the provisions of the Equality Act 2010. It ensures our workplace is a fair environment.

We do not discriminate against staff or eligible applicants. We’ll judge you on your abilities and skills and nothing else.

We're committed to enhancing the diversity of our organisation, to reflect the communities we work within.

Disability Confident employer

We're committed to equal access and opportunity - both through the National Lottery funds which we distribute and as an employer.

We always endeavour to make reasonable adjustments for disabled staff.

As a Disability Confident employer, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum essential criteria for every vacancy.

Any special requirements can be discussed and arranged before an interview. Please contact our HR team via telephone: 020 7591 6000.

Investors in People

The Investors in People standard demonstrates our commitment to our greatest resource: our people. We aim to provide continual learning and development opportunities for all our staff.

We have been a recognised holder of the Investors in People standard since 2002. We have since undergone three successful reviews.

Volunteering guidance

Volunteering is when someone spends time, unpaid, doing something to benefit society, the environment or someone who they're not closely related to. Volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual.


This guidance will help you address our inclusion priority in your project. It is for everyone applying for a grant, regardless of the size or type of organisation you represent or the amount you are requesting.
