It's important to us that staff thrive personally and professionally in an encouraging and non-discriminatory environment and we want everyone to feel comfortable and able to be themsleves.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender+ network offers support to staff with issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity in the workplace.

We welcome staff who do not identify as LGBT+ and invite you to become an ally to help us with promoting LGBT+ interests and equality at work. 

Our priorities

  • To provide a safe place for all staff to raise LGBT+ issues, access advice and get peer support
  • To work together to identify and support the needs of LGBT+ staff, or those who are questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity
  • To address concerns and challenge discrimination
  • To help the Trust develop and implement policies and procedures for LGBT+ staff and people who use services
  • To educate staff about LGBT+ issues and best practice in sexual orientation or gender identity 
  • To encourage staff to become LGBT+ allies and join our network
