The best teams bring together a variety of experiences and perspectives, challenge the status quo, innovate and push each other to be better every day. As a Disability Confident Leader, our ambition is to become leaders in valuing diversity and promoting the inclusion of people with every kind of disability.

By creating opportunities for improved representation and progression of our colleagues who have a disability, and by embracing the diversity of all our abilities as a prized asset, we hope to build a truly inclusive environment for all of our colleagues enabling them to be their authentic and talented selves.

We are proud to sign up to the Valuable 500 campaign, and commit to the following actions:

– Place diversity and inclusion on the Executive Committee agenda, and drive a real cultural shift across the organisation to ensure colleagues understand why inclusivity matters.

– Give all colleagues a platform to support each other and the ability to implement their own inclusion initiatives through our disability diversity network.

– Ensure inclusive design is at the heart of our future infrastructure plans and service development, for both passengers and colleagues.

– Review our recruitment processes to ensure they are as fair and inclusive as possible, and extend support to those who experience barriers to work including people with additional learning needs and disabilities.
