We’re committed to promoting equal opportunities and we value diversity. We want complete equality for everyone who works for Derby Homes or uses our services. To show our commitment we have policies, procedures and guidelines which promote and support equality for everyone.
Derby Homes works with and supports various specialist groups to discuss service issues and improvement ideas from a particular tenant perspective. The established groups are:
Minority Ethnic Advisory Group (MEAG)
A group of tenants, residents and staff discussing issues relating to minority ethnic tenants.
Tenants Reviewing Access Quality (TRAQ)
A group of tenants and staff discussing issues affecting disabled tenants.
Supported Housing Offering Unity and Trust (SHOUT)
A group of elderly tenants who work with the supported living team on service improvements.
Women in Neighbouring Communities (WINC)
An informal group that meet to discuss issues relating specifically to female tenants.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Network (LGBT)
A group of tenants, residents and service providers from across the city who meet to discuss issues affecting the LGBT community in Derby. This group is facilitated by Derbyshire Friend, Derby's LGBT support service.
If you would like to attend or find out more about MEAG, TRAQ, WINC or SHOUT, please contact a member of the Resident Involvement Team on 01332 888760.
If you would like more information about the LGBT Network, please contact Derbyshire Friend on 01332 207704 or email email@example.com
To show our support for disabled people, we:-
- interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy, and consider them on their abilities
- hold regular meetings with disabled employees to discuss what more we could do to fully develop their abilities
- do all we can to ensure any employee who becomes disabled, stays in employment
- make sure all of our employees have a full understanding of disability, and how they can support it in the workplace
- review our position on disability each year, to make sure we’re doing everything we can. We communicate any improvements we make to our employees and the Employment Service.
We received the Disability Symbol in recognition of the action we’ve taken to meet the five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees.
