Addison Lee is proud to announce themselves as an official partner of Pride in London. We are glad to be working with Pride again this year, as part of the partnership we will be providing a range of transport services to the Pride in London Organising Committee, and taking part in the Pride parade which takes place on Saturday the 25th of June.
But this is much more than just about the partnership. It is part of larger project that goes beyond just the festival. In 2012 we launched our own diploma qualification for Drivers. The aim of the bespoke accredited training is to support professional development of drivers and equip them with the extensive skills required to provide the highest level of service as a professional Private Hire Driver. The in-house driver training incorporates robust equality training, with participants shown the hard-hitting Love has no Labels video – showing that we are all the same, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or pregnancy and maternity.
Michael Salter-Church MBE, Chair, Pride in London says: “I salute Addison Lee for the journey that it has undertaken as a business. Its equality, diversity and disability training is unmatched within the minicab industry. We are delighted to have Addison Lee as our transport partner, helping volunteers, performers and others to create a successful Pride.”
We care about diversity at Addison Lee and are a proud member of the Stonewall ‘Diversity Champions’ scheme. As a Diversity Champion, Addison Lee has access to best practice sharing, networking opportunities and research from a wide range of organisations. We are working with Stonewall to promote diversity and improve both our service for the LGBT community.
The Addison Lee Diploma is accredited by People 1st who are the Sector Skills Council for Travel, Tourism & Transport. They have a reputation for industry-defining intelligence and delivery. The quality accreditation was achieved by People 1st sending a team of inspectors to review Addison Lee’s training materials, interviewing the trainers extensively, checking their credentials and observing the training delivery. The Addison Lee Diploma has just been re-accredited for another three years.
We have an on going commitment to giving you the best service. All our drivers undergo thorough training including RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) risk assessments. This ensures that we provide the highest level of professional competence and service at all times.
Providing you with the best drivers allows us to give you the service you deserve. No matter if it’s for work or play, you can rest assured that we are providing you with the safest possible journey.
