Our Trust is based in a beautiful and vibrant part of England, offering excellent schools, music and food venues and family friendly communities and activities.

Our Values

We value equality and inclusion, and believe that our staff should reflect the diversity of the populations we serve. We have a BME Network, an LGBT+ Network and a Disability and Wellness Network. We have an active reverse mentoring scheme - a space where our senior staff are mentored by one of our BAME staff members - to explore areas of good practice and generate ideas and priorities for improving the inclusive culture within our Trust.
