Over the years, we've been more visible during Pride marches in cities like Manchester, Birmingham, and London.
You may believe that because marriage is legal in the UK and LGBTQ+ people have equal rights, there is less of a need for events such as this, however, discrimination still exists, whether it is online, in person, or in the media. As a large charity, we want to help advocate for social, cultural and behavioural change so we can make our network a place where life is better by water, for everyone.
Inclusivity in the workplace
We are an equal opportunity employer and work is often where we spend most of our days and we want new colleagues and younger generations looking to start their careers to understand that the Trust is a safe and welcoming place to work. We want everyone to feel comfortable and bring their whole selves to work with them.
We want to build an inclusive organisation - for colleagues and volunteers. We have an LGBTQ+ forum together with a whole host of Inclusion Circles in place, as well as a Rainbow Allies organisation with over 100 members.
