As part of Sunderland Counselling Service’s commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion of all people we run a bi-monthly focus group. The aim of this group is to encourage and engage all our SCS employees, volunteers and stakeholders.

We are looking to draw on the range of difference and diversity which runs through our workforce to improve our approach and actively promote equality and diversity.

As an organisation we are committed and working to raise awareness of issues surrounding prejudice, bias and discrimination and identify ways to actively challenge these.

What is National Inclusion Week?

National Inclusion Week (NIW) is a week dedicated to celebrating inclusion and taking action to create inclusive workplaces. Founded by Inclusive Employers, National Inclusion Week is now in its 10th year.

For National Inclusion Week 2022 we want to progress that unity to become action, which is why this year’s National Inclusion Week theme is ‘Time to Act: The Power of Now’.
