BlindAid Anti-Discrimination Statement

BlindAid is a charity that specifically supports blind and visually impaired people.  As a disability charity we hold longstanding values of upholding and working toward social justice for all people. We are a caring community, operating in the 12 inner London Boroughs.  We work in the most diverse and cosmopolitan Boroughs in our City and our Board and staff team reflect the communities in which we work.  Our charity is naturally an equal opportunities employer.  We are inclusive, anti-discrimination of any kind and we stand against all systemic discrimination. The time for fundamental societal change is now.

BlindAid is an anti-racism charity and we vow to purposefully identify, discuss and challenge issues of race.  We will also continue to challenge ourselves to understand and correct any inequality we may discover and gain a better understanding of ourselves during this purposeful process.

We determine to explicitly and publicly affirm our identity as an anti-racist charity.

We are confident that our anti-racism commitment is reflected in the day to day life and culture of the charity through our policies, programs and practices.  BlindAid encourages all staff and volunteers to feel comfortable that their voices are heard and that each and every person working with the charity is valued.  We operate a continual learning philosophy and we are committed to consistent improvement for the benefit of all.
