Volunteer EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) Survey

Bliss is committed to recruiting volunteers who reflect the diverse community we serve. To help us achieve our aims, we invite you to complete this diversity monitoring survey.

The information you provide will help us understand who our adverts are reaching, and ensure our recruitment practices are fair.

All questions are optional, and responses are anonymous. All data will be handled in confidence and in line with GDPR (General Date Protection Regulation) guidelines.

Your answers will not be reviewed as part of the selection process.
