Equality & Diversity

Our Equality & Diversity Statement

Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care believes in fairness and equality, and values diversity in all our dealings, both as provider of supportive and end of life care and also as a responsible employer.

The charity is committed to eliminating discrimination on any basis. We aim to provide accessible services, delivered in a way that respects the needs of each individual and does not exclude anyone. By demonstrating these beliefs, Phyllis Tuckwell ensures that it develops a workforce that is diverse, non-discriminatory and appropriate to deliver modern supportive and end of life care.

Equality and diversity values are embedded into our policies and procedures, so that equality and diversity becomes the norm for all.

Equality is not about treating everyone the same, it is about ensuring that access to opportunities are available to all, by taking account of people’s differing needs and capabilities.

Diversity is about recognising and valuing differences through inclusion, regardless of age, disability, sex and sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy and motherhood, race (including ethnic or national origin, colour and nationality), religion or belief (including no belief).

Gender Pay Gap

All organisations employing 250 or more employees are required to report annually on their gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap differs from equal pay:

  • Equal pay means that men and women in the same employment performing equal work must receive equal pay.
  • The gender pay gap is a measure of the difference between men’s and women’s average earnings over a defined period of time, regardless of role or seniority and is expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.
