Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust recognises the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our community and business. We will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by:
Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP) NHS Trust is a diverse organisation with over 5,000 dedicated staff providing inpatient and community-based mental health care. We provide inpatient and community services to approximately 1.8 million people living in Bath and North East Somerset (B&NES), Swindon, Wiltshire, Bristol, North Somerset, South Gloucestershire and in parts of Dorset.
Our outstanding people are dedicated to using the expertise and resources within AWP to provide a person-centred approach for those who use our services and for all employees. We recognise that happy and fulfilled employees give better care.
We are proud to be fostering a diverse workforce that reflects our communities. A key commitment to this is improving staff representation from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, those from the LGBTQ+ communities and people living with disabilities. We are also proud to recognise the value of serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families.
