Staff Support Associations are groups within the Met made up of officers and staff that share a commonality. The associations include groups across protected characteristics; disability, gender, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation and beyond.
The SSAs provide support; guidance and information to their members and the wider Met to ultimately improve what it’s like to work in the Met for everybody.
Our SSAs are used as a sounding board within the Met, providing their insight to shape how the Met does things, both internally and externally with our communities of London.
