FREDIE (Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement)

Target Housing was incorporated in 1993 to provide housing and support to ex-offenders. Promoting equality and inclusivity, whilst celebrating diversity was one of our founding principles.

Today, we support a wide range of marginalised people and we are more committed than ever to promote Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement.

Our Vision

To develop and maintain a diverse and inclusive culture, where people are respectful of each other and their differences. A place where people can raise opinions and ideas or express differing needs and be listened to with respect, without prejudice and with equal consideration.

All of our services are universally accessible and appropriate to everyone who needs them and fully enable people from all backgrounds and abilities to live with dignity, respect, choice and control.

Our Principles

We uphold the principles of FREDIE (Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement) in everything that we do.

We value diversity: we recognise that different people bring different perspectives, ideas, knowledge and culture and these differences make us stronger.

We believe that discrimination or exclusion based on any protected or individual characteristics and circumstances is unfair, unacceptable and counter-productive for a successful organisation.

We respect the rights of individuals, including the right to hold different views and beliefs. However, we will not allow these differences to be manifested in a way that is hostile or degrading to others.

We expect the same standards from our board members, volunteers, suppliers and contractors as we do for our own employees.

Our Strategy

We continue to develop our psychologically-informed approach; this empowers and enables people from all backgrounds and abilities to live with dignity, respect, choice and control.

We continue to build inclusion and equality opportunities into our policies, training and staff development.

All employees are appropriately trained in equal opportunities, diversity and inclusion, to better support the people that use our services and also each other.

We maintain our accreditations for Investors in Diversity and Disability Confident and continue to be recognised as one of the top 100 most inclusive workplaces by the National Centre for Diversity.

We develop our team of Diversity Ambassadors to shine a light on areas for improvement, promoting awareness of diversity and developing creative ideas for inclusion.

Discrimination, bullying or harassment will not be tolerated and will be dealt with swiftly and appropriately.

We will monitor our levels of diversity and set challenging targets to increase and maintain diversity within our staff the people that use our services.

We will continue to utilise surveys and feedback mechanisms to measure our performance, track our progress and identify areas for improvement.
