We are proud to support and celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives and events at the Trust.
Project SEARCH is a supported internship programme that gives young adults with a learning disability the opportunity to learn the skills to do a job in a real working environment. Each year, the Trust offers 12 interns a placement in which they undertake 10 to 12 week placements around our hospitals. Since the programme started in 2016, more than 40 young people have taken part in the programme. The Trust regularly achieves 92 per cent success rate for interns securing sustainable paid employment, all of which support the Trust in its ambition to be an anchor institution within our local community.
The programme is run in partnership with local organisations Brent Council, the College of North West London, Action on Disability, Kaleidoscope Sabre and Project SEARCH. The Trust was nominated for and won 'highly commended' in the Most Inclusive Employer Award for Project SEARCH.
The Trust has marched in Pride in London since 2018, the UK’s biggest, most diverse Pride, and has flown the Rainbow Flag above our hospitals during Pride month since 2017. In 2020, the Trust adopted the Philadelphia Rainbow Flag, which honours people of colour within the LGBTQ+ community.
