Practical and Social Inclusion
One of our core aims is to work on issues and problems that have practical impact on lives and to explore ways of opening up opportunities benefiting people and communities. We seek to place emphasis on need of moving practice forward
We believe that if something can be done, it could perhaps better be done through participation with others. Our conviction is that therein lies the possibility of change for the better.
Social Inclusion, naturally, is a key theme in the delivery of all services and programmes delivered by CHARA TRUST.
CHARA TRUST wholeheartedly supports the principle of equality of opportunity in employment, education and training, and opposes all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination on the grounds of race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, marital status, disability or age or an minority interests. A number of measures are to be adopted to ensure that no member of local community is excluded from any service provided by the Trust.
All programmes, initiatives and services CHARA TRUST offers currently operate a complete commitment to address imbalances and reduce/eliminate gaps as detailed in its Equality Strategy Action Plan. Those factors include:
A local economy in which all sectors of the community are full represented.
Equality of participation and the achievement of outcomes of training programme and services for all sectors of the local community.
Equality of opportunities in all aspects of operations and understanding of equality issues by staff.
Criteria will be set specific to individual project aims, which take account of objective/targets required within the client group beneficiaries. Previous best practice and success stories will be augmented into new projects to promote continuous improvement and effectiveness of current proven procedures and mechanisms relevant to diversity challenges.
All possible steps are taken to ensure that all individuals either employed or accessing CHARA TRUST's services are treated equally and fairly and that CHARA's procedures and discussions on recruitment, selection, training promotion and career management are based solely on objective and job related criteria.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the recruitment of people suffering possible social inclusion.
