SPLITZ Support Service

Equality Report 2017-2018 Louise Wilson FCMI Company Secretary August 2018


At Splitz we take our responsibility to people very seriously. This applies equally to our team as well as to our beneficiaries. All staff and volunteers are given the opportunity to attend a range of training opportunities, including achieving nationally recognised qualifications. This year we invested over ÂŁ35,000 in developing our team. Excellence in how we support both paid staff and volunteers is demonstrated by our commitment to retaining PQASSO and Investing in Volunteers accreditation.

SUMMARY

• 118 paid staff and 34 volunteers • £35,000 spent on training • 13,613 referrals in 4 counties

Introduction The purpose of this report is to examine whether our HR policies and procedures are delivering equality of opportunity in fulfilment of our duties under various equality and discrimination legislation. This report sets out the results of monitoring between 1 April 2017 and 31 March 2018. Age and age group is determined at the end of the reporting period. We have sub-divided the report to reflect data for each of the counties we work in and each of the service types we deliver (eg outreach, perpetrator programmes).

Staff There has been a high turnover of paid staff (26%) this year. This is expected given the number of changes to funding streams and services, and the use of temporary staff to fill short term vacancies. Retention for paid staff remains high (80%) supporting a higher turnover of temporary or short term staff this year. We have reshaped services in Devon and Wiltshire in line with funder requirements. Our other services remained steady with minimal change in staffing levels. We have fewer volunteers as our volunteer programmes in Devon and Gloucestershire did not develop as expected, mainly due to other more pressing demands.

Beneficiaries The range of data collected on our management systems allows us to provide useful demographic information about our beneficiaries. This year we analysed our data to identify gaps in our services. Our services are delivered in rural shire counties with high concentrations of white British residents, each with a main town or city with a more diverse population. We have used our analysis to map our beneficiaries against the expected diversity for each county.

THE TEAM • • • • •

156 people worked with us this year Devon 41; Glos 22; Wiltshire 90; Bristol 3 11 trustees: 7 female; 4 male 27 volunteers: 26 female; 1 male 118 paid staff; 108 female; 10 male; 48 fulltime; 70 part-time

Data The snapshot data above shows the maximum numbers of people who worked with us throughout the year. We have included a breakdown on how the number of people changed, and included all people who have worked with us, namely paid staff, volunteers and trustees. Equality data is for the people who were with us at the end of the year. Board The Board embraces diversity in its broadest sense, believing that a wide range of experience, background, perspective, skills and knowledge combine to contribute towards a high performing, effective Board, which is better able to support and direct the Charity. We are pleased to report that the percentage of women on the Board remains high at 62% (5 out of 8). The Board recognises other aspects of diversity and will continue to focus in the coming year on this important issue in its widest context.

RECRUITMENT • 20 vacancies • 84 applicants: 41 people interviewed • 27 appointments

In 2017-18 we recruited for 20 vacancies and made 20 appointments. We advertise locally and aim to have employee representation that reflects the communities where we work. Adverts for vacancies are also placed on a number of websites specific to our sector and the type of work we are recruiting for. We collect monitoring data at the application stage and the interview stage. Although completing a monitoring form is not compulsory at the application stage it is encouraged at the interview stage. This is analysed to help ensure there is no conscious or subconscious bias in our recruitment processes.

Age Group There is a fair mix of ages at all stages of the recruitment process. This year we appointed fewer staff aged 20-29 (17%) (2016-17: 27%) and significantly fewer staff aged 50-59 (8%) (2016-17: 14%).

Disability Almost 12% of applicants declared a disability at the application stage (2016-17: 6%). Only 12% of those interviewed declared a disability (2016-17: 2%). 8% of those appointed considered they had a disability (2016-17: 0%)

Ethnicity 12% of applicant declared a BME ethnicity (2016-17: 6%). 20% of interviewees and 16% of appointees were from a BME background (2016-17: 2%, 5%).

Gender Male applicants represented 10% of all applicants, 7% of interviewees and 8% of appointees (2016-17: 5%, 7%, 5%).

RETENTION

• Overall retention: 80% (target: 80%) • Overall turnover: 25% (target: 20%) Retention Retention is measured as the number of staff with more than 1 year of service at the year end divided by the total number of staff 1 year ago. Retention for paid staff: 80% Retention for volunteers: 82% Retention for trustees: 70% Overall retention: 80% (target: 80%) Overall retention is on target. Turnover Turnover is measured as the number of posts vacated in the year divided by the average number of posts during the year. Turnover for paid staff: 26% Turnover for volunteers: 15% Turnover for trustees: 33% Overall turnover: 25% (target: 20%) Overall turnover is higher than our target. The high turnover in parttime posts contributed to the higher than expected rate.

BENEFICIARIES

The total number of referrals this year was 13,613, representing a 14.6% decrease (2017/18: 15,946).
