The group offers support to new and existing LGBT+ colleagues, encourages recruitment, retention and the development of LGBT+ staff, and provides a safe, confidential space for people who don’t wish to be ‘out’ at work, as well as supporting people who already are.
We seek to influence and are consulted on new developments and changes to policy that affect LGBT+ staff and/or LGBT+ people in the community. We want to help make services more inclusive for LGBT+ people.
We organise and support various events throughout the year, including Pride, LGBT History Month, Trans Remembrance Day, and Bi-visibility Day.
