When you contact us about any matter that involves discrimination, we will always listen to what you tell us and act upon it promptly. If someone is speaking to us on your behalf, please ensure they have your permission and you have let us know that we can speak to them.
It would also help us if you have as much information as possible to hand when you contact us, about yourself and any other parties involved.
For the Regenda Group, it’s about making sure that employees, customers and residents are not discriminated against, or receive less favourable treatment because of their age, disability, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, gender or gender identity or any other characteristics which may unfairly affect a person’s opportunities in life.
We understand and recognise that everyone is different, and we treat everyone as individuals. We want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to live peacefully within our communities.
We appreciate that the standard services we provide to customers and residents are not always suitable to everyone, so we aim to make sure we adapt those services to suit your individual needs.
