Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Working for North London Hospice

At North London Hospice we are always striving to improve the quality of life of our patients with a potentially life-limiting illness. We put people first, putting them at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to providing the best care and support for our patients and their families.

“In everything we do at NLH, we want to ensure that our staff, volunteers and patients feel they are part of an inclusive environment, where they are welcome, and difference is respected and celebrated. By ensuring we have people working and volunteering for us (who have different experiences, outlooks and perspectives), we are in turn able to better understand and respond to the needs of our local community.”

Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is at the heart of our organisational culture. As part of our pledge to take positive action in recruitment we encourage applications from under-represented candidates including BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) and Disabled candidates as we work towards a representative workforce that is able to provide the quality, the dignity and respect and to deliver above and beyond.

As an employer we are committed to ensuring that any candidates with disabilities who apply for roles within our organisation, and who meet the essential criteria, are offered an interview.

As well as ensuring our vacancies are accessible to all, we are committed to supporting all staff, recognising that staff with disabilities (temporary or permanent), or who may be developing a disability, may require additional support to enable them to remain in the workplace. Further information regarding our Access to Work scheme can be found here.
