We believe that 'people are better off when they can do for themselves, rather than having something done for them or to them'. We want all people, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or identity, ethnicity or religion to have the opportunity to engage safely and comfortably within the Hireup platform and enjoy the benefits of having choice and control over their lives.
We understand that diverse communities and individuals require diverse needs and therefore we are committed to ensuring our online community reflects the real world we're living and working in.
