DWP has a central Wellbeing, Inclusion, Safety and Health team which sits within the corporate HR function. Because of the cross-cutting nature of the team’s work it is not possible to split the numbers by diversity, inclusion, gender, LGBT, or race alone.

In addition, there will be many colleagues throughout the Department involved in diversity, inclusion, gender, LGBT, or race related activity, in both a formal and informal capacity.

Unfortunately, this information is not held centrally and would only be available at a disproportionate cost.
