At West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, we are creating an inclusive and diverse workplace, and as part of our commitment to improve healthcare career opportunities for everyone, we treat all applicants fairly and consistently. We actively encourage applications irrespective of people's age, disability, sex, gender identity and expression, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or personal circumstances. We have active and supportive staff networks for a range of interests and needs and we welcome applications from people with lived experience of mental health challenges, learning disabilities and neurodiversity.
The West Yorkshire Mental Health, Learning Disability and Autism programme continues to work in partnership with the Touchstone Inclusion and Recruitment team to support recruitment from underrepresented groups. Through the project, we continue to provide one-to-one support throughout employment processes and post-employment support to increase the number of people from diverse backgrounds entering the workforce and to aid retention. We have held outreach community engagement events across West Yorkshire and are running employability workshops in local community spaces.
Since October 2022, we have supported 35 people with one-to-one sessions, provided information to 514 people through engagement events, supported 19 applications and had three successful offers of employment. An initial report reviewing the data across Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust; Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust; South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, and information collated through case studies of people we have supported has been presented to the MHLDA Workforce Collaborative Group. Several recommendations to support Trusts with inclusion recruitment were also agreed. To find out more about this project, please contact email@example.com.
