We’re building an organisation for future generations, where everyone is welcome. A place where you can be yourself and feel valued.  

Building an inclusive environment is a team effort, and at Sussex Partnership we care deeply about hiring, retaining, and developing a workforce that reflects the communities we serve. 

To support this, we have introduced a range of staff networks, which play a crucial role in helping staff to build relationships, access development opportunities and ensure underrepresented communities know they belong here. 

We currently have a Disability Network, Spirituality Network, Women's Network, LGBTQ+ Network, Neurodivergent Network, Ethnic Minority Network, and the VaLE (Valued Lived Experience) Network.
