Diversity & Equality at HappyPorch in 2023

At HappyPorch we value diversity and we are always working to create a more equal, diverse and open workplace.

It is the time of the year when we regularly assess diversity and equality within our Team and compare to previous years so we can identify our improvement. We are very proud to say that we have improved in almost all categories.

Here are our results for 2023:

Age category

Most of the Team members are still in the middle brackets age categories. The difference when comparing to previous years is that the majority of the Team is now in the 35-44 age category:


We are on our way on improving the gender diversity and similar to last year these are the current results:



We asked our Team members about their conditions such as visual impairment, hearing impairment, physical disabilities, cognitive or learning disabilities, mental health condition and/or an other long term condition:


Reasonable Adjustments 

The Equality Act 2010 requires all employers to make reasonable adjustments for disabled employees. HappyPorch wants to remove barriers wherever possible that get in the way of a person living with a disability from doing their job. For this year we have one request for an adjustment and we will definitely address that soon and do our best to provide the adjustment.



In terms of ethnicity in our Team we have improved compared to previous years:

Sexual orientation

We have also improved our Team’s diversity in this category:


Similar to previous years the majority of the Team responded with “no religion or belief” although we have diverse beliefs:


Most of our Team members have attended Government funded schools(non-selective) between the ages 11 and 16:


We have no big changes in the responses about our parents’ or guardians' educational and work history:

We have a diverse level of education in the Team with the majority that has a degree level qualification:


The number of responses for primary care for a child under 18 years is rising throughout the years:


Still a small percent of our Team members look after someone with a long term physical or mental ill health caused by disability or age:
