We have relaunched our anti-racism perfect care goal. Mersey Care has zero acceptance of racism, discrimination, and unacceptable behaviours from and toward our workforce and our patients, service users, carers and families.
We are reaffirming our commitment to actively oppose racism and acknowledge that we have previously not done enough. We are committed that we will do things differently from now on.
The core principles of our new anti-racism plan are:
Within a restorative, just, and learning culture we will hold ourselves and each other to account for being actively anti-racist. This approach allows us to unapologetically and purposefully identify, discuss and challenge racism.

This is an active message and we will continue to provide resources for you to access to support your own exploration on becoming anti-racist.
We welcome and encourage you to explore your own reflections on this important agenda and see how you too can become actively anti-racist. See our additional information link for the slides presented at the launch event, and a series of prompt questions to support your reflections.
