The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Vision - The Principles of FREDIE
At CHCP we treat our colleagues with kindness and respect and follow the EDI Vision - the principles of FREDIE.
CHCP’s mission, vision and values promote the organisation as being a respectful, inclusive and fair organisation where people love to come and work. The EDI Vision links in very closely with this and follows the principles of FREDIE; this stands for Fair, Respect, Equality, Diverse, Inclusive and Engagement. We are really keen not just to promote this culture but to believe in what we promote and act accordingly.
The principles of the vision have therefore been woven into the charter, which highlights how you can expect to be treated and equally how the organisation expects you to treat others.
