Good Relations Bulletin launched by Belfast Trust

21/01/2014

Belfast Trust is proud to launch the first edition of its Good Relations Bulletin dedicated to highlighting to the community we serve and our staff, some of the sterling work carried out by the Trust as part of its Good Relations Strategy: Healthy Relations for a Healthy Future 2012 to 2015.  To find out more about Good Relations in Belfast Trust click on the link now

Belfast Trust is the first Trust in Northern Ireland to have developed and launched a Good Relations Strategy. The Strategy, which was ratified by Trust Board and formally launched in May 2012, demonstrates the Trust’s commitment to go over and above its equality legislative compliance to embrace diversity and promote good relations amongst people of different religious beliefs, political opinions and racial groups

The bi-annual bulletin was developed in response to feedback from community engagement and research carried out with staff, service users and the community as part of the consultation process to develop the strategy. There was a clear message that service users, staff and the community were not aware of, and wanted to know, more about the excellent work that the Trust does in the course of our daily work to promote good relations in the provision of health and social care and in employing our staff.

Initiatives featured in the bulletin highlight how the promotion of good relations in health and social care really does contribute to the Trust purpose of improving health and reducing inequalities for service users and staff.

The bulletin will be circulated to a wide range of individuals and organisations including staff, Wellbeing and Treatment centres, community and voluntary groups, other statutory organisations and Section 75 groups including religious organisations, political parties and ethnic minority organisations.

Anyone who would like to provide feedback on the bulletin or has a project they would like to be included in future editions, we would be keen to hear from you. Please contact: by email to: veronica.mceneaney@belfasttrust.hscni.net
