Diversity, equity and inclusion
We believe better health for all is within our reach and by becoming a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organisation together we can achieve this.
Our legacy objective supports future work, and makes it a part of our mission to build a fair and equitable legacy.
The Foundation’s mission is to help build the foundations of a healthier society. To deliver on that mission, the Foundation is committed to accepting its heritage and understanding how it impacts on health inequalities and our work today.
This legacy work further embeds diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) into our current work and increases our ability to achieve and maximise our impact on reducing health inequalities in the long term.
Our Legacy workstream sit across the organisation rather than within specific action plans. It currently has 3 main areas of focus:
Our Associate’s programme is an important part of the Foundation’s commitment to being a more inclusive, equitable and diverse employer and organisation. It forms part of our DEI Legacy workstream, which aims to build a fairer future for communities in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.
Consisting of apprenticeship, internship, and placement programmes, our Associates programme aims to nurture a diverse pipeline of talent and encourage people from a range of different backgrounds into the Foundation and the sector as a whole. As a place-based foundation, we have a strong focus on people with the contextual understanding and experience of the inequalities we aim to address and the communities within Lambeth and Southwark.
