Healthwatch Rochdale ranked number 11 following being awarded the Investors in Diversity Award from the National Centre for Diversity.

To achieve the award, staff members, volunteers and partner organisations were invited to “have their say”, on how well Healthwatch Rochdale were achieving Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE).

Healthwatch Rochdale achieved the FREDIE Award in April after deciding to apply for the award as part of their ongoing commitment towards developing and maintaining an equal and inclusive workplace that is welcoming of all diversity.

We were delighted to achieve the FREDIE Award in April but being ranked as number 11 in the top 100 most inclusive workplaces has been amazing recognition for us. We are a very small team who strive to be inclusive and respectful of all backgrounds and always aim to work within the FREDIE principles. We represent a diverse borough, and the FREDIE principles are something that have been embedded within our work culture and are a part of the Healthwatch Rochdale ethos
