We are one charity, but we represent many ideas, experiences and backgrounds.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of our volunteers, supporters and employees and we expect everyone who works for us to share this commitment.

As a socially responsible organisation we will not tolerate abuse, neglect and/or exploitation wherever it occurs or whoever is responsible. We have policies and guidance in place which sets out the steps we have taken to facilitate reporting and minimise the risk of a safeguarding incident or concern occurring in the first place, for example, through robust onboarding processes, including DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checks where appropriate, and provision of training.

Our aim is to be an inclusive employer for everyone. The equality, diversity and wellbeing of our people is very important to us and our goal is for both our employees and volunteers to be able to be their true self at work.

We’re on a journey to make sure our workforce is diverse and inclusive to help us to reach our full potential as an organisation and by supporting our people to reach theirs. We’re making exciting steps forward through our employee forum, by working to decrease our gender pay gap, and with CP Pride – our LGBT+ and Allies network for employees.

Dominic Sullivan, Cats Protection’s Acting Chief Executive, explains:

“Cats Protection supports the principles of diversity, equality and inclusion throughout the Charity. There is a huge amount of public goodwill and support for the work that we do. We want anyone who works for or who volunteers for Cats Protection, or who wishes to, to feel welcome and valued.

Our aim is to improve the welfare of cats and we need everyone who wants to help fulfill that aim to feel that they can participate and make a difference”.

We passionately believe that inclusion, diversity and equality will help Cats Protection improve the lives of all cats. We actively encourage and welcome applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates who reflect the communities that we work with and those who bring a diversity of inputs and perspectives.

Our purpose is to treat all our people equally to grow a diverse and happy workforce.
