Stamping out Racism - Our Promises

Raise Awareness
We promise to create opportunities for discussion, listening, learning and education across our AACE network to increase individual, team and organisational cultural awareness and acceptance.

Respond
We promise to campaign for lasting, positive change and improved experiences for our BME workforce and communities and to use our platform as UK ambulance services to take a stand against racism and race discrimination, harassment and victimisation.

Represent
We promise to improve access to jobs, training and education, career progression and wellbeing support for our BME workforce and members of our diverse communities to ensure greater representation across our services.

Respect
We promise to put respect and compassion at the heart of our systems,  processes, organisation behaviours and cultures to enable BME people to be confident, feel valued and express their true selves in the workplace.

Responsibility
We promise to call out racism in all its forms and to challenge racist behaviour whenever we encounter it or are made aware of it to create and nurture an anti-racist culture across the ambulance service.
