The Greater Manchester Moving Team and Board have co-designed a commitment statement and set of ambitions that signify the importance we place on promoting, embedding and advancing Equity, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EEDI).

Our commitment

Greater Manchester Moving is committed to providing equal opportunities and promoting diversity, irrespective of ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexuality, disability, religion, pregnancy or personal circumstance. We ensure we consider lived experiences and personal circumstance when creating an equitable working environment, by promoting a safe, equal and respectful workplace.

Equality, equity, diversity and inclusion is critical for the success of GM Moving and the achievement of our vision. We are fully committed to treating all of our employees, job applicants and volunteers equally and equitably. As an employer, we aspire to being a diverse, inclusive and responsible organisation.

We believe in people. We believe that with the right opportunities, everyone should reach their full potential and we believe that moving more, sport and physical activity is a fundamental key to unlocking potential. Our aim is to have a workforce that not only thrives, but also reflects and understands the communities we work for and with, and one which encourages a sense of belonging for our team and partners.


  1. To develop and grow workforce (internal and external) EEDI knowledge, understanding, and confidence.
  2. Greater diversity and inclusion in all its forms on our Board and across the GS team, so we are more representative of the GM population.
  3. An organisation that leads by example. One that celebrates diversity and promotes inclusion and consciously creates a culture which promotes equality and respect.
  4. We embed EEDI into all that we do: Our operations, how we interact with one another, our behaviours, and that we meet/exceed all EEDI standards.
  5. An inclusive, safe and supportive environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is given a fair and equal chance to fulfill their potential and thrive.

Throughout 2023 we will be developing an Action Plan which will identify actions needed to achieve, support and then maintain the ambitions outlined above.
