Spotlight on AACE’s Anti-Racism promises: August 2023




This August we are shining a spotlight on the development of the Ally Programme at Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust (WAST).

In November 2021, the Welsh Ambulance Service launched the Ally Programme to help create a more inclusive, compassionate, and culturally responsible workforce in line with Strategic Equality Objectives and their culture and behaviour reset.

From Bystander to Upstander is the next phase of the journey, which was launched in May 2023. Paola Spiteri explains more in the above video.

We’ll continue to post our Spotlight updates every other month in our website’s News section and via Twitter at @AACE_Org.

You can find more information about our anti-racism promises, along with messages from all of our Ambulance Trust CEOs on our Stamping Out Racism page.
