Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Nottingham Community Housing Association is committed to promoting equality and eliminating unfair discrimination from all aspects of its work and underpins the work of the Association, as outlined in NCHA's Corporate Strategy. 

As a major housing and care provider in the East Midlands, we recognise that we have the power to reduce discrimination and the disadvantages that people experience. We do this by making our services more accessible and responsive to the needs of the communities with whom we work, and individuals using our services as customers, employees, contractors or consultants.

We want our services and resources to be accessible regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation or other individual characteristic, which may unfairly affect a person’s opportunities in life. This is reflected in our Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion Policy.

Additionally, we have an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, which outlines our commitment and key objectives for each year. These objectives are reviewed on a regular basis by our Equalities and Diversity Forum, who monitor the on-going progress towards meeting our Equalities and Diversity targets.
 
You can also read our Equality Statement, which demonstrates our commitment to eliminating and preventing discrimination of any kind across our business.

We are proud of our diverse Board and workforce and are taking steps to address under representation where it occurs. We are Stonewall diversity champions and have over 120 LGBT+ Allies among our colleagues. Take a look at our NCHA workforce diversity profile August 2019.

We also have some wonderful role models across NCHA that span a range of diversity characteristics, whom we are very proud – see our Role Models booklet for more details.
