A more inclusive British Red Cross is essential to provide more inclusive programmes, and role model inclusion for partner National Societies. We have a target to increase staff disclosing a disability from 6% to 8% by end of 2019, in recognition that our work, national and international, will benefit from the insights of people with lived experience of disability.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan
Our Inclusion and Diversity Programme is led by our CEO and a senior level steering group, and runs to end of 2019. It includes making our employment and volunteering opportunities, properties and technology more accessible, increasing our disability confidence, improving routes for person with disabilities to have their voices heard, reviewing policies and processes, and improving data and reporting mechanisms to inform decision making.
