The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy set’s out The Big Life group’s approach to creating a safe environment free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and bullying, ensuring it is a place where everyone is valued and has an equal chance to succeed.

The policy’s purpose is to provide equality, fairness and respect for all and to ensure that no-one is unlawfully discriminated against in line with the 9 protected characteristics as detailed in the Equality Act 2010

Coronavirus update

In light of the current situation, we are making changes to the way we deliver services at the moment. One-to-one appointments that would normally be delivered face-to-face will now take place over the phone or through video call. There is no need to call us to confirm – your regular point of contact will call you at the time your appointment was scheduled.

We are also no longer holding groups inside. We’re currently arranging alternatives where possible through considering walking or virtual groups. Please contact your group facilitator, or the centre where the group runs from, for more information.

If you’re worried, think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus or want further information, see the latest advice from Public Health England.

Finally, if you’re struggling through self-isolation, please don’t feel alone. There are local community groups being created all over the country, which you can find here. Alternatively, you can call our community centres in your local area, which you can find here.
