EDI Case Studies
Equality, diversity and inclusion is vital within our sector, the communities we serve and the people who work in our organisations.
Over the last few years we have seen some fantastic examples of how housing associations are creating initiatives and assessing their internal practices to make sure they are being as inclusive as possible.
We have pulled together some great case studies from around the sector to show you some of the success stories. Please contact Bethan Buck if you have a great story to tell and you'd like it featured on this page.
