Equality Objectives

Equality objectives were developed in conjunction with staff, students and volunteers at the Orpheus Centre. 

The lead Director for Equality & Diversity, Moira Lambert, is responsible for delivery of these objectives. Progress will be reported to trustees quarterly and outcomes summarised in our published annual report.

Alternative formats: Large print (18pt) or audio (mp3) format of these equality objectives is available by emailing [email protected]

There is no Equality Objective on narrowing equality gaps for student outcomes and that is because this is not a major issue for Orpheus. Although the Equality Objectives are dominated by the protected characteristic of disability, that is because this is a key issue for Orpheus to address, following analysis of staff and student outcomes and feedback.
