Diversity Data

This data is based upon submitted diversity questionnaires from staff and represents the reported diversity data in relation to our firm. We comply with SRA requirements and the guidance by the Information Commissioner’s Office. As a result we are not required or permitted to publish any data which might identify one of our employees. We are also not required to publish data in relation to religious beliefs, sexual orientation or transgender. It is our view that the terms used in this report are self-explanatory but if more information is required, please email our Practice Manager.

This report will be updated every two years. The next review is due in June 2021.
