LGBT friendly logoWe value diversity

We welcome service users, volunteers and staff from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Values underpinning our work:

  • that older people are all individuals of equal worth irrespective of their gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion or age
  • that all older people should be treated with dignity and respect
  • that Age UK Exeter strives to combat discrimination in all forms.

Age UK Exeter aims to:

  • listen and respond to the wants and needs of all older people in Exeter
  • be aware of the diversity of our service users, staff and volunteers and seek ways to better reflect the full range of people in our local community
  • find ways of making Age UK Exeter a positive choice of contact for all older people in the city
  • engage with minority groups in the city to inform our own service development and that of others
  • work to ensure that older people from minority groups receive a positive and informed response from our staff, volunteers and service users
  • promote these values with other organisations with whom we work.

We welcome lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, trans-gender, intersex and questioning people and have links with the local Intercom Trust.
