Equality and diversity

Equality’, ‘diversity’ and ‘inclusion’ are terms that simply mean we should all be treated fairly, with respect and have equal access to get the right services, whoever we are.

We want Home Group to be an organisation in which no-one experiences discrimination or disadvantage and we are committed to taking action to make this a reality.

Our goal

To be a class leader in equality, diversity and inclusion, building a culture where all of our customers, and colleagues feel they are treated fairly, with dignity and respect.   

We will achieve this by involving our customers and colleagues in all their diversity in shaping changing and influencing our services.

Here's some of the ways we're promoting equality and diversity

  • Our Human Library raises awareness and challenges stereotypes by sharing personal stories and experiences at Lifeswap sessions. They also advise us on diversity issues and help with Equality Analysis and training
  • We're proud to be a Stonewall Top 100 Employer
  • We won Best Workplace for Women in the Best Places to Work Awards
  • We’ve signed up to Leadership 2025; a development programme focused on delivering a step change in ethnically diverse leadership across the housing sector
  • We’ve signed up to Make a Stand, which is supporting victims of domestic abuse through the CIH
  • We have gender and ethnicity balanced recruitment panels at board and senior leadership teams
  • We have a partnership with the Steven Lawrence Charitable Trust and the Shaw Trust
  • We have a Women into Senior Leadership programme for female colleagues across all levels and areas of the business
