Collection and Publication of Diversity Data

We are aware of and respect the requirement to publish diversity data. Our Diversity Data Officer is Mark Johnson. He can be contacted on 01625 260577, mark.johnson@elderflowerlegal.co.uk.

Our policy is to ask members of staff if they wish to volunteer information about diversity, using the model questionnaire in the BSB Handbook, which will be anonymised and held in confidence. Members of staff must give their explicit consent to the collection of such information.

Given the small size of our workforce, the collection and publication of such data would be of very limited value and our staff members have not consented to the collection of such information given the risk of identification of individuals from such a small sample.

The qualification focuses on understanding the key illnesses and frailties of old age and vulnerability – hearing, sight, capacity, mobility, dementia, so that SFE members are able to provide the best support to their clients, to help them to make their wishes understood and are able to act in their best interests.
