Acorns is committed to equality of opportunity and ensuring the needs of children, young people and families across our broad demographic are met.
To achieve this we consistently work on developing our knowledge, skill and awareness of diversity issues. The care we provide and the environment we create to deliver care reflects our ongoing commitment to respecting the diversity of the communities we serve.
Acorns provides care and support to people from all cultures; those with faiths, beliefs and religions and those without. We readily endeavour to provide the spiritual care and faith support required by the families and children who use Acorns. We have established links with faith leaders in the Midlands and each hospice has spiritual resources to aid spiritual comfort. A private and appropriate quiet place will always be provided for families wishing to pray, meditate or reflect.
In the hospices we plan for and celebrate the major cultural and religious festivals and holidays each year. In respecting the diversity of the community we live in, everyone can share in the enjoyment of these special times of the year.
