Customer equality, diversity and inclusion policy review

Selwood Housing recognises the need to be aware of any equality and diversity barriers and work with our customers and partners to be an inclusive organisation that treats everyone with respect.

Read more on the Equality Act 2010 (Equality Act easy-read version).

All customers attending the focus group understood the importance of collecting equality and diversity data and the positive steps Selwood Housing are making to understand their customer base.

What did we ask?

We invited five customers to help us review our policy and join us in a focus group to give feedback and recommendations on clarity, simplicity, and inclusivity.

What happened next?

All feedback and recommendations have been reviewed, and the customer equality, diversity and inclusion policy has been edited and updated to reflect what our customers said.

"I've lived in my Selwood property for the last 7 months and I've loved every minute. Choosing shared ownership has meant I can get back onto the property market and afford it. Because I own a percentage of my property, it means my future is secure. I'm impressed with the spec and the communication from the team was brilliant. They kept me in the loop the whole way through. " - Kathryn.
