Our staff and volunteers
We meet the ambitions and aspirations for the people who use our services through a highly skilled, experienced engaged, and motivated workforce.
Executive Leadership Team
Our Executive Leadership Team ensures the direction and strategy set by our Board of Trustees is implemented effectively for the benefit of people who use our services.
Every day, our volunteers make valuable contributions across our organisation and we are grateful for the dedication and expertise they bring, often using their own experiences of mental distress particularly in our offers of peer support.
The 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.
The National Service User Steering Group
Service User Leadership is at the core of the work we do at Together, evidenced through our purpose as an organisation; that we work alongside people with mental distress to develop their insights, skills and potential and promote their voices to improve policy and practice for all.
