Our statement

Gender Pay Reporting involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it does not involve publishing individual employees’ data.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website. We will do this within one calendar year of April 13th, 2018.

We can use these results to assess:

- The levels of gender equality in our workplace
- The balance of male and female employees at different levels
- How effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded.

Gender Pay Reporting requires our organisation to make calculations based on employee gender. We will establish this by using our existing HR and payroll records. All employees can confirm and update their records if they choose to by contacting the Human ResourcesDepartment.

Below is the statutory information of our results:

On the snapshot date the gender split was 89.04% female and 10.96% male. A predominately female workforce is reflective of the care industry.

The mean gender pay gap of 7.6% is the result of the highest paid employees within the organisation being males in the management roles and the male care staff electing to work unsocial hours that attract a higher pay rate.

The median average of 0.81 % presents a lower pay gap between female and male.

Proportion of women and men according to quartile pay bands:


- We will continue to encourage career development across both genders across all levels.
- We will consider any actions we could take to encourage applications from males into the lower quartile.
- We will consider methods for attracting applicants of a specific gender for roles where there is an existing gender imbalance.

I confirm that the published information in relation to the gender pay gap is accurate.
