Black Lives Matter - statement from Place2Be on the Derek Chauvin trial verdict

Black Lives Matter - statement from Place2Be on the Derek Chauvin trial verdict

A statement from Place2Be's Chief Executive, Catherine Roche, on the Derek Chauvin trial verdict and our ongoing commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

The verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd is a positive step in the right direction in the fight for racial equality and justice.

However, we recognise there is still a great deal more to do to create a fully inclusive and equal society. As an organisation, we exist to support the mental health of school communities across the UK, working with children, young people and families from a diverse range of backgrounds. So we understand the impact of racism and inequality on the health and wellbeing of many communities.

We will continue to work with partners across the sector and beyond to address any inequalities and to create a workforce that better reflects the communities we work with and support.

Place2Be remains fully committed to playing our part in this through all we do as an employer and as a leading provider of school-based mental health services, to bring real and lasting change.
