What our carers say
I enjoy working for the Pontesbury Project because no two days are the same. The people we support all have very different characters, making them all unique and great fun to work with! It’s very rewarding work helping promote their independence.
Statement from trustees
Our Board of Trustees are all Christian and The Project continues to reflect the original vision, values, and aims of the founders: to provide the best possible life for those the Project cares for. The Trustees provide oversight, supervision, and counsel to ensure that these founding aspirations drive the Project today. The Board’s focus is on strategic and long-term matters that will ensure sustainability and the best possible outcomes for the people we support. Each Trustee takes a personal interest in the individuals being supported, but the Board delegates daily operational decisions to the CEO. The well-being of staff and the people supported is the priority of the Board.
Equality and Diversity
Individuals with different cultures, perspectives, and experiences are at the heart of the way we work. We want to recruit, develop, and retain the most talented people, regardless of their background, and make best use of their talents.
We are guided by our values in everything we do and recognise that being a diverse and inclusive employer helps us fulfil our responsibility to make a difference to the lives of the people we support.
We seek to develop a work environment where we treat all employees as individuals, fairly and consistently. We work within the spirit and practice of the Equality Act 2010 by promoting a culture of respect and dignity, and by actively challenging discrimination should it ever arise. We remove unnecessary barriers for our employees through training and development, promotion, and career planning.
We will continue to support our workforce to demonstrate the principles of diversity and inclusion in their everyday activities, roles, and functions.

Recruitment policy – We conduct the proper recruitment checks on our staff, which include ensuring they have the right to work in the UK and their salary is paid direct to each individual’s bank account.
Due diligence – We expect our suppliers and any third parties who make referrals to us to comply with the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Training – We have reviewed our training modules and developed guidance to ensure staff are fully aware of the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and its impact on our activities.
