Equality, diversity and inclusion

“Our focus on EDI recognises and values the differences in each of our employees. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and respect. We want to create an inclusive culture that nurtures talent and allows every individual regardless of disability, gender, ethnicity or nationality, the opportunity to flourish and reach their potential.”

Our strategy

Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to how we work. We want our people to be as diverse as those we support, and we work hard to ensure everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential.

At Sense we are diverse in age, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity and culture. We each have our own lived experience, we each bring unique qualities, and we each play our role in building an inclusive workplace, where everyone can thrive.

We’re proud of the work we do to make sure that people with complex disabilities are able to take part in life. And we want our organisation to be just as diverse as the people we support.

We aim to be a leader within our sector when it comes to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), and we have a clear EDI strategy outlining this.

We support and encourage all of our people to be themselves at work, and we both recognise and value our differences. Our employee networks, which champion and celebrate our diversity, are just one way we do this.

Our EDI Board is driven by our employees and employee network leads, and is championed by our Chief Executive and EDI lead. This helps us to ensure we have an open forum to discuss ways to better represent our people and the communities we support, to break down barriers, and to ensure all our people have equal and fair opportunities to thrive.

We’ve been on a journey to modernise pay at Sense, and we’re pleased and proud that in our latest Gender Pay Gap Report, our median pay gap is just 0.4%.

Employee networks

At Sense we have a diverse team of people, passionate about making a difference to people’s lives. Our employee networks are led by our people and ensure we can all feel connected, celebrate our differences, and have a voice in decisions.
