Equality, diversity and inclusion
Respect is at the heart of CGL’s values as an organisation, and the themes of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) are central to everything we do.
Change, grow, live (CGL) are committed to creating an inclusive environment which celebrates difference and allows our staff and service users to flourish. We recruit the very best staff from a wide range of backgrounds, ensuring service users benefit from our diverse skills and expertise. We always work to the principles of fairness and equality of opportunity in all our recruitment processes.
We work hard to ensure that our services always offer excellent standards and are accessible to everyone who needs them, irrespective of their:
- race or ethnicity
- sexual orientation
- religion or belief
- marital or civil partnership status
- gender reassignment
- pregnancy or maternity
- current or previous offences
- socio-economic status.

CGL is Disability Confident Committed. This means we are a member of the Disability Confident scheme, which supports employers to improve how they attract, recruit and retain staff with disabilities.
