Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) is delighted to announce they have been awarded the diversity network accreditation from the Housing Diversity Network (HDN).
The Accreditation is a comprehensive assessment of how an organisation deals with equality and diversity. Achieving this recognition shows that WCHG has got effective leadership and processes in place to achieve positive outcomes for colleagues, partners and tenants.
The Housing Diversity Network (HDN) is a social enterprise that supports organisations to improve how they address inequality, get the most from their staff and meet the needs of the communities they work with.
Chair of the WCHG Board Eddy Newman said, “I’m delighted that Wythenshawe Community Housing Group has been awarded this recognition as it demonstrates that we are fully committed to Equality and Diversity and that is embedded throughout the organisation.”
Group Chief Executive of Wythenshawe Community Housing Group Nigel Wilson said, “I would like to thank all the hard work of our colleagues in achieving this accreditation and we will continue to work very closely with the Housing Diversity Network to help build on this success and find ways we can continue to improve in the future.”
HDN Chief Executive Clifton Robinson said, “I applaud the determination of WCHG to focus so much of its energy on addressing inequality. It knows that it works in an area with high deprivation and, accordingly, so much of its energy is directed into community investment, education activities and support into work initiatives. The formation of the new Equality and Diversity Champions Group at WCHG overseeing the delivery of the Group Equality Objectives is really important in order to ensure that both customers and leaders are engaged with this agenda and that its success continues in the future”.
