Our Values and Culture

Our values are at the heart of everything we do and will guide the way we work with each other, our partners and our communities.

Our vision is to create a culture where everyone is valued, respected, celebrated and can thrive in an environment they trust.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

We know we want to reflect our community at all levels of the organisation and that diversity and inclusion are important to us as an employer and service provider.

At our heart is our shared commitment to excellent services for our community, it is what unites us. We want to promote a culture that truly values the benefits of diversity and celebrates all it brings to Waltham Forest.

Waltham Forest firmly believes that its people deserve to be the best they can be, working in an environment where everyone can be their authentic self and fulfil their true potential.
