These policies set out the core standards and ethics of the Going For Independence Community Interest Company:
Going For Independence recognises that certain groups and individuals in society are disadvantaged because of discrimination as a result of age, race, colour, nationality, belief, religion, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, physical or mental disability, HIV status, or class.
We will do everything we can to challenge prejudice and discrimination and promote equality.
We will work to ensure we all have an anti-discriminatory environment, and we will take appropriate action wherever instances of discrimination and harassment occur, in the delivery of services and in the course of employment.
We will carry out service monitoring and evaluation and quality assurance checks to ensure continuous service improvement.
Going For Independence complies with the requirements of the Data Protection Act and the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which takes effect from 25th May 2018. The GDPR replaces the European Data Protection Directive and was designed to harmonise data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU Citizen's data privacy.
We would assure you of the absolute privacy of your details at all times – which will never be passed on, or marketed for profit to any other parties.
Going For Independence guarantees to:
provide a prompt response to a service request
give a summary of any information requested
only use DBS-checked and trained personnel
give value for money
provide caring and supportive services, tailored to individual needs
