Description

PROUD TO PROVIDE

Working towards delivering public services that are truly LGBT+ inclusive

Hosted by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and supported by Stonewall.


In recent years many public sector organisations have taken huge steps towards becoming workplaces where LGBT+ people feel accepted, valued and able to give of their best.

Is the same progress evident, however, for LGBT+ people using the services they provide? How much do our fire and rescue services, police forces, local authorities, social landlords and NHS organisations really tailor their interventions to the diverse needs of the LGBT+ community?

These are the questions to be explored by a range of speakers at Proud to Provide, a national conference being hosted by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, recently named by Stonewall as the UK’s most inclusive public sector employer. The event will be hosted by Graham Liver, presenter of BBC North West Tonight and BBC Radio Lancashire's award winning breakfast show.


Aimed at diversity and inclusion professionals, LGBT+ staff network leads, service managers and those involved in community engagement and empowerment across the public service, this lively and thought-provoking event has so far attracted speakers including:

Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive - Stonewall

Carl Austin-Behan - LGBT advisor to the Mayor of Greater Manchester

Opening Doors London - Working towards LGBT+ inclusive health and social care services in the capital

Lloyds Banking Group - An exemplar from the private sector in creating seamless services of LGBT+ customers

Plus there will be best practice case studies from Gentoo Housing and Cheshire’s blue light emergency services. More speakers to be confirmed shortly.
