Our statement of commitment:
“Atrial Fibrillation Association is committed to providing services which embrace diversity and which promote equality of opportunity. As a Charity we are also committed to equality and valuing diversity within our volunteer workforce. Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our values, are embedded in our day-to-day working practices with all we come into contact with, our colleagues and partners.”
We will provide equality of opportunity and will not tolerate discrimination on grounds of: gender, marital status, sexual orientation, race, colour, nationality, religion, age, disability, HIV positivity, working patterns, caring responsibilities, or political beliefs – or any other grounds. We will demonstrate our commitment by:
- Treating people fairly and with respect.
- Promoting an environment free from discrimination, bullying and harassment, and tackling behaviour which breaches this.
- Recognising and valuing the differences and individual contribution that people make. Providing support and encouragement to volunteers in order to develop and increase their contribution to the organisation through the enhancement of their skills and abilities.
- Every person involved with Atrial Fibrilliation Association has a personal responsibility for implementing and promoting these principles in their day-to-day dealings.
