Diversity and Inclusivity

BEA welcomes everyone to our activities regardless of age, gender, ability or disability, race, faith, culture, size, language or sexual identity. Our events are open to all, and do not presume any prior knowledge. 

Our policy objectives:

To run courses which reflect and celebrate the diverse nature of our society.

To ensure that all our venues have wheelchair access for those who need it. 

To support those housebound by mobility or transport issues by making some of our courses available online.

To support children through working with schools on joint educational projects.  

To support low-income persons and families by keeping our prices low.

Our Diversity Officer will review achievement against our policy objectives annually.
