Partnership for Children embraces diversity.
We promote the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young children all over the world, regardless of their ethnic, social and educational backgrounds. Although we are based in England, we are governed by an international Board of Trustees and have partners in more than 30 countries.
We recognise the many benefits of diversity, but know that some people are marginalised or denied equal rights by reason of age, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, faith, culture, poverty or disability.
- Ensure that, in recruiting Trustees, staff or volunteers, nobody is disadvantaged for any of the reasons listed above.
- Form and maintain partnerships with a diverse range of organisations.
- Strive to ensure that our programmes and resources are inclusive for children of all backgrounds, especially those who are growing up with Special Educational Needs or in particularly difficult circumstances.
- Promote understanding and cooperation between people of different countries, cultures and faiths, through our training and resources.
- Advocate the inalienable right of all children to live flourishing lives.
- Publicise this policy and ensure that Trustees and staff adhere to it at all times.
Diversity greatly strengthens our partnership.
