Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion

We cannot succeed in our mission to end the pain and suffering of eating disorders unless we are able to help everyone affected by eating disorders and address inequalities in experience and outcomes.

We take equality, diversity and inclusion seriously at Beat and we are committed to ensuring EDI is embedded in our service provision and our individual behaviours.

We recognise that there are still significant barriers that deny equal access to the information, support and treatment that everyone affected by eating disorders deserves. As an organisation we will reduce barriers to those seeking our support and use our voice and influence to tackle inequalities and drive change in the NHS.

We know that we need a diverse, passionate workforce to deliver our mission. We are committed to recruiting, retaining, and promoting a diverse mix of individuals who are representative of the communities we serve.

We believe that everyone should be able to be themselves, feel respected and be empowered to give their best and reach their full potential. We will create a safe and inclusive culture where everyone can progress and thrive, and has a sense of belonging. It is all of our responsibility to make Beat a fair and equal place to work, where we all promote equality, value diversity, and work inclusively.

We expect all of our third-party suppliers and partners and everyone involved in Beat’s activities to act in line with our EDI policy. We do not tolerate disrespectful behaviour towards each other, supporters or members of the public. Any breaches of this policy are taken seriously by the organisation.

We know that eating disorders do not discriminate. They can affect anyone, of any age, background or circumstance. We also know that it is only by actively working to eliminate discrimination and create equality that we will be able to end the pain and suffering of eating disorders for good.
