South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of approximately 1 million people living across the large geographical area of Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield. Approximately 6.4% describe themselves as South Asian compared with 4.28% of the workforce of the Trust. There is evidence that diversity in the workforce benefits organisations, employees, service users and the wider community.
