The Board of Trustees fully supports the organisations first Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) strategy 2021 – 2025.

The EDI strategy sets out an ambitious plan to become an organisation that actively opposes all discrimination and inequity with an initial focus on anti-racism, and to develop and monitor processes for ensuring that the organisation operates in a way that truly reflects our approach to EDI.

Our approach to EDI reflects our core four values as set out in our organisational strategy.

  • We are Inclusive
  • We are Collaborative
  • We are Courageous
  • We are Respectful

The Refugee Council is committed and accountable for advancing equity, diversity and inclusion in all its forms and believes that this is critical in everything we do. Through the commitment and enthusiasm of all our employees, volunteers and partners, we aim to be an organisation that is proactive in not only its legal obligations but in all our work.
