As users of the Disability Confident scheme, we are committed to taking action to improve the employment, training and career development of disabled people and those with long-term health conditions. We will guarantee shortlisting to anyone with a disability or long term health conditions whose application meets all the essential criteria given in the job description for the role you are applying for.
A disability is defined as a ‘physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a person’s ability to carry out nomal day-to-day activities and must be expected to last for 12 months or more’.
Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to diversity and inclusion in volunteering at Birmingham Cathedral. Our aim is to have a diverse team of people and a wide selection of opportunities available.
Inclusive access is a vitally important element in extending welcome to volunteers in the widest sense. This includes not only physical access for people with mobility impairments but also those with autism, dyslexia, visual or auditory impairment. Those who have varying educational and language backgrounds and those for whom cathedrals and Christianity are completely unfamiliar territory.
We have a diverse range of volunteering roles which should attract a diverse range of volunteers. We want to ensure our volunteers reflects the diversity in society. We are committed to ensure our Volunteering is inclusive, equitable and accessible to all.
We aim to be inclusive, recognizing the contribution and benefits that community cohesion can make. Having inclusive practice embedded in our cathedral means all volunteers will feel the benefits.
