Alliance Homes strikes gold

Equality Standard gold logoAlliance Homes has become the second organisation in the South West to be awarded the Gold Equality Standard, from Equality South West.

Portishead based Alliance Homes collected the award at an event in November. It was presented to the organisation by Equality South West’s Chief Executive Katie Pratt.

The scheme rewards employers who actively promote equality and diversity, and who achieve fairness in the workplace.

Andy Perry, Equality and Diversity Manager at Alliance Homes, comments: “Achieving the Gold Equality Standard has taken us through a process which has raised awareness, both internally and externally, of what we do in relation to equality and diversity for our customers, staff and communities.

“At Alliance Homes, equality and diversity is about better understanding the needs of service users and staff so that we can try to meet them in the day-to-day delivery of our services.”
