NELFT shortlisted for National Diversity award

NELFT has been shortlisted for the Diverse Company of the Year award at the National Diversity Awards. The ceremony will be held on Friday 8 September at the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool.

NELFT received the original nomination earlier in the year and the judges have put the Trust forward for the final shortlist of 10, which includes national organisations such as Channel 4 and RBS. We are one of three NHS organisations to make the shortlist in this category.

The National Diversity Awards is an awards ceremony which honours positive role models, companies, entrepreneurs and community organisations across several different strands within the equality and diversity sector. It is held annually in various venues across the United Kingdom.

John Brouder, Chief Executive said: “This is great news for the Trust. At NELFT we embrace diversity. Being shortlisted for this award is recognition of the hard work we are doing to support our staff and patients to feel valued.”
