The Face to Face Equal Opportunities PolicyFace to Face counselling service is committed to equal opportunities both in employment of volunteers and in service provision. We aim to eliminate unfair discrimination of service users and volunteers on the grounds of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion, gender, class, marital status, sexual orientation or disability. We encourage commitment to equality of opportunity by our members through on-going awareness training.
Equal opportunity in service delivery means that we recognise and respect the different and equal needs of individuals using our services. Our counselling service is non-profitable and runs on a donation basis. We aim to be accessible and promote our services on a fair and equal basis.
Equal opportunity in employment of volunteers means that recruitment and selection are based fairly on merit and ability to meet the requirements of the work of Face to Face.
We aim to recruit from a wide section of the community and reflect our commitment to equal opportunities in our procedures, supervision, and training processes and grievance policy. We aim to meet the high standards rightly expected by those who provide, use and fund our services.
