In line with UK Government advice regarding COVID-19 we have adapted our services. Find out more about our response here.

In 2021 the Sovini Group developed a Group-wide ‘Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy’ for the period 2021-26.

This is the first time an equality strategy has been developed that incorporates all Group members and we believe this sends out an important message about how we work together as a Group of individual companies and what we collectively believe in.

The Strategy includes a series of high-level strategic aims (or what we want to achieve) as set out below:

Strategic Aims

  • Provide accessible services free from any barriers, real or perceived, that are available for all groups, are tailored to individual needs and address inequalities
  • Go beyond compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements by developing and adopting best practice
  • Promote good relations between all groups with protected characteristics
  • Maintain and develop strong working culture where there is equality of opportunity for all groups, everyone feels valued / included and diversity is actively encouraged and appreciated
  • Ensure equality, diversity and inclusion are embedded in all business practices and relations, internally / externally and through supply chain management
  • Provide strong leadership and influence to promote equalities issues at the local, regional and national scale
  • Never ignore – where we see discrimination, victimisation, harassment or differential treatment as a result of personal characteristics we take affirmative, corrective action
  • Never stand still and seek year-on-year improvement and innovation

Each year the Strategy will be subject to an annual refresh and we will provide a report on the actions we have undertaken (our objectives) to make progress against the high level strategic aims.
