FOI - Expenditure on equality, diversity, and inclusivity.

We're waiting for Arthur Lightfoot to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust,
I wish to make an FOI request, as set out under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please can your organisation provide the following information:

a) The number of roles in your association (expressed in numbers of FTE), that are mainly or exclusively focussed on issues of equality, diversity, or inclusivity. For example, this could include (amongst other guises) “EDI officers” or “diversity and inclusion project managers” but would not include general HR managers.

b) Either a) the pay band of each of these roles, or b) the combined total salaries for these roles. Whichever measure is more in accordance with your data preferences.

c) In the past 12 months the number of staff days across your organisation which have been committed to attending equality training programmes, whether internally run or with external consultants. (staff days = duration of the training programme multiplied by the number of staff in attendance for the course). If unable to provide please mark as N/A in your return.

Please can this information be returned to me within 20 working days.
If your organisation does not hold information in relation to any of the letters please file as N/A and provide the rest of the information that you do hold.

Yours faithfully,

Art Lightfoot
