Who you'll work with

Creative Support’s staff team is very diverse and reflects the diversity of the communities within which we work. Across all services and local authorities, approximately 20% of our service users are from black and minority ethnic (BME) groups, and in May 2011, approximately 18.5% of our staff team described their ethnicity as being other than White British or White European. In order to ensure equality of access and to overcome barriers which may be the result of communication issues, service publicity is made available in a variety of formats and languages.

Creative Support has significant experience of providing culturally appropriate services to diverse groups of service users, both as part of mainstream services and specialist services for people from BME communities. We provide services which meet the religious, cultural, ethnic and linguistic needs of service users. We also ensure our services do not discriminate on the grounds of sexuality, gender or disability. All our employees are trained in anti-discriminatory practice and working in ways that are non-judgmental and person-centred. We also train our staff to understand the discrimination that certain individuals from vulnerable groups in society may face, to enable them to act appropriately when providing support.

At all times Creative Support promotes a culture of respect, sensitivity and acceptable behaviour towards all service users and employees.
