The iAPPLAUD Allyship charter

The Trust's BME Allyship model sets out the principles of how we can become better allies to BME colleagues as well as practical actions and further resources. LTHT staff can discover more on the BME Staff Network Intranet page.

Equality and Diversity training

We have Equality and Diversity training on a range of issues that any member of staff can take part in. The Equality and Diversity team can also be booked to meet with your team to talk about the practical ways in which you can become more inclusive. LTHT staff can find out more on the Equality and Diversity Intranet page.

The BME Staff Network

The BME Staff Network can be joined by any member of staff, regardless of background. For white colleagues, it is a great way to hear from people from different backgrounds to yourself. LTHT staff can discover more on the BME Staff Network Intranet page.

Reciprocal Mentoring

This unique opportunity from Organisational Learning allows LTHT senior leaders to take part in a unique two-way leadership and learning coaching programme alongside a BME colleague. This is open to participants at different times of the year.

Further reading

Our staff library stocks a wide range of literature that examines racism and the experiences of BME people - any member of staff can order a book which the library will post out to you. It's a great way to read up on the important issues. Find out more on the Staff Library webpage.
