A Channel Islands charity which supports Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities is launching a diversity in the workplace scheme in Guernsey.

The programme called DIFERA (diversity, inclusion, fairness, equality, respect and acceptance) was rolled out in Jersey earlier this year.

It hopes to encourage organisations to introduce or improve their diversity and inclusion initiatives.

"The DIFERA programme launched earlier this year in Jersey and has already seen some fantasic organisations sign up. Here in Guernsey we are extremely pleased to have Northern Trust, along with the Youth Commission for Guernsey and Alderney, and BWCI all already pledging to be DIFERA early adopters.

– Ellie Jones, Vice Chair of Liberate (Guernsey)
