Promoting equality and respecting people's differences must be
at the core of an open, fair and diverse society. South Yorkshire
Probation Trust has a crucial role to play in building the
confidence of all the communities we serve locally, not least for
the most isolated, excluded and marginalised groups and individuals
in South Yorkshire.
We are working towards being an organisation that treats every
member of staff, offender and victim with dignity and respect
irrespective of their age, disability, race, religion, gender,
sexual orientation, union membership or any other factor. We strive
to create an equality of outcome for all, eliminating unlawful
harassment and discrimination and promoting good relations and
positive attitudes towards difference.
In order to achieve this we aim to be an organisation where:
Diversity and inclusion is embedded into our culture and the way
we do business;
All staff take personal responsibility for diversity and
All systems are geared to delivering a diverse culturally
There is transparency and visibility in our approach to diversity
We are a learning organisation, sharing information and using
We are an action-oriented, outcome focussed organisation that
measurably demonstrates our success
All staff, communities, victims and offenders feel empowered,
respected and safe.
