Diversity News – Summer 2017

Welcome to our Summer 2017 Newsletter! In this issue you will find out how Alphabets LGBTQ, our youth project in South Gloucestershire, has been working with local schools, as well as launching our latest film for schools.

As always you can find out how to book our training on equality and diversity themes including specialist training on domestic violence, hate crime, gender identity and LGBT+.

Our newsletter editor, Dave Sully, has some top tips for you on clear writing and formatting to make the most of your documents, news items and your social media.

You can find out more about how we work with volunteers and the importance of volunteering in our diverse communities. Learn more about the new Trans Plus Helpline which Bristol and Taunton Mind have launched. We delivered their volunteer training for them and they are a great group of people who are really passionate about supporting other trans people on their journeys.

As well as our film for schools we have also launched a film for health care professionals on improving inclusion for LGBT+ patients which is available on our YouTube channel, the story and link is on page 12-13.

Read more about my work with Bristol Zero Tolerance (BZT) and their important campaigns on harassment and gender-based violence and abuse including hate crime and domestic violence. This article includes an important call to action as BZT are carrying out a survey on street harassment (please see pages 15-16).

I have won an award for making an outstanding contribution in tackling domestic violence and abuse. I am truly humbled to have been given this award from South Gloucestershire Council. You can read more in the newsletter and there is a link to My Blog Post

Read an update on our work to develop the new LGBT+ Equality Network in South Gloucestershire and the very positive launch event we held in May 2017 in Kingswood.
