People make Together who we are.
The people who use our services help shape what we do by telling us what they need and how we can best help them overcome mental health issues.
Our staff use their skills and experience to meet the needs of our service users in the most effective way by
providing care, support and knowledge.
Our Trustees set Together’s overall policy and direction. We currently have 13 Trustees, all of whom have expertise and experience in different areas of our work. Once our Board of Trustees has set the policy for Together, our Management Team ensures the objectives are met efficiently.
Associate partners and donors
Vital to our ongoing work, too, are our associate partners and donors who fund our mission to help individuals achieve mental wellbeing and take control of their lives.
Gender Pay Gap
At Together for Mental Wellbeing, we pride ourselves on promoting a diverse and inclusive culture and embracing our differences. We offer all our employees the same growth and development opportunities. We have a strong female representation throughout the workforce. As of April 2017, women comprised 70% of the total workforce, 53% of managers and 63% of the Executive Team.
Under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017, as an employer with more than 250 employees we are required to publish annually a series of calculations that highlight the gender pay gap across the workforce. The gender pay gap shows the difference in the average pay between all men and women in the workforce. It is defined as the difference between men’s and women’s hourly earnings, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.
Together’s mean gender pay gap of 8.1% compares favourably with the third sector overall, which had a gap of 12.4% in 2016 – while the national average was 12.9%.
At Together, we’re committed to developing a deeper understanding of the reasons why we have a gender pay gap – and defining and implementing appropriate actions towards narrowing this gap.
