Raven Housing Trust announces that they have become a member of the global Hidden Disabilities Sunflower network as part of its commitment to ensure equity and accessibility throughout its business. The Sunflower exists to support and raise awareness of those living with a non-visible disability, and Raven is committed to supporting our employees and customers with hidden disabilities.
Raven’s customers and colleagues with non-visible disabilities can advise if they have a non-visible disability, or they can choose to discretely wear the Sunflower, such as on a lanyard or badge to indicate their need for additional support, assistance with different activities, or just to simply have more time. Raven employees will receive training about hidden disabilities to deepen their understanding of how these conditions may make everyday experiences challenging, which will be invaluable when delivering services to customers and collaborating internally. Customer can pick up a Sunflower anyard from Reception.
As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, Raven is dedicated to being a truly inclusive organisation with equity and accessibility embedded throughout the organisation’s culture and processes.
Head of People and Culture:
“Inclusivity is a vital part of our culture and aligns with our values of Trust, Understand, Collaborate, and Care. We want everyone to feel comfortable being themselves, and supporting colleagues with hidden disabilities is an important aspect of this.”
Executive Director of Customer Experience:
“Raven is proud to become a member of the Disability Sunflower network because it helps us in developing a better understanding of the needs of our customers, so that we can improve our accessible services and facilities and demonstrate our commitment to inclusivity”
