Diversity and Social Inclusion

We continue to explore how we can expand our diversity in all areas and increase our social inclusion. These are big concepts, that require time and energy to develop and we are very pleased with the road that we have travelled so far, and are always on the look out for new and alternative routes.

The British Psychological Society accredited the Bangor Clinical Psychology Training Programme in 2012.  Unconditional on-going accreditation was obtained from the BPS with a number of specified recommendations.  One of these recommendations referred to our People Panel as follows:

‘The programme enjoys the support and contribution of a committed and engaged group of service users who feel valued in their role and spoke of a positive and well-supported experience.¬† This aspect of the programme’s provision has developed well since the previous BPS visit (2007) and continues to go from strength to strength, having now become a tangible and embedded part of the programme with a direct impact on the training experience’.

This reflects the hard work and commitment of our People Panel and it is heartening to hear that their experiences are positive and meaningful.
