Embracing Diversity &
Promoting Equality

We are fully committed to providing holistic services which embrace diversity and promote equality of opportunity. Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our values, are embedded in our day to day working practices with all children and young people, foster families, colleagues, customers and any other stakeholders.

We are committed to the following:

  • creating a more diverse workforce and client group
  • creating an environment and culture which recognises and values differences.

Shining Stars Fostering Agency is dedicated to equal opportunities and challenging oppressive and discriminatory practice. Our ethos is to work in an ethical, moral and socially responsible manner.

Encouraging Applicants from all sectors:

Shining Stars Fostering Agency encourages applicants from all sectors of the community and this is reflected in our recruitment activity and literature. Our practice is all inclusive and we aim to ensure that that no fostering applicant is discriminated against, directly or indirectly, on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender, disability, being married, religion persuasion or belief, being in employment or unemployed.

We say No to discrimination

We will provide equal opportunities for all and will not tolerate discrimination. We are committed to identifying, understanding and eliminating all barriers that prevent access to services, information and employment.

This is what Ofsted said about our Diversity & Equality approach

“The excellent promotion of diversity and equality is built into all aspects of the agency. Leaders and managers are highly ambitious about what the children and young people can achieve. This is regardless of their circumstances, past experiences, cultural backgrounds and their initial lack of knowledge of English language and customs. Documents are available in different languages and interpreting services are used regularly and to good effect.”
