Women embracing

We Include. You Belong.

Our Belonging and Inclusion Strategy aims for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever department they work in and whatever their background. The Church of England is for everyone and we want to also reflect the diversity of the community the Church serves within our workforce.

We believe our commitment to belonging and inclusion fuels our progress and drives us forward. The NCIs are a safe, inclusive workplace for people of all backgrounds and walks of life and we welcome people of all faiths and of no faith. 

We aim to:

  • Be an NCI Workforce which represents the diversity of the nation that the Church of England serves, at all levels including the most senior.
  • Be a place where everyone feels that they belong, are valued for who they are, what they contribute, and are supported to develop and flourish.
