Arawak Walton (AWHA) are ‘Passionate about People’ and our
People Strategy outlines our approach and commitment to all people involved
with our organisation.
The association’s roots are in the African-Caribbean
community, however, we have grown and prospered over the years by offering an
excellent, culturally sensitive and personal service to a very diverse customer
base. We have continued the work of our founder members in contributing to
local regeneration activities and tackling social deprivation and we pride
ourselves on delivering excellent customer service and on making a positive
difference to people’s lives.
Arawak Walton have signed the pledge because we are
committed to creating a workplace free of stigma and discrimination surrounding
Mental Health Issues. We care about our colleagues and we aim to support and
improve the health and wellbeing of all.
The Time to Change pledge complements our existing work and supports our commitment to our people and our aim to encourage and embed a culture that fosters and promotes our values, diversity, inclusion and wellbeing amongst all staff, tenants and stakeholders. Our agreed action plan highlights several positive steps which we will take to ensure our workplace remains free of stigma and discrimination. We will have dedicated Mental Health First Aiders who will be the first point of contact for colleagues experiencing crisis as well as Champions who will ensure the association keeps mental health on the agenda, via policies, sharing stories, signposting and raising awareness by supporting national and global mental health campaigns.
