Our LGBT Network was formed in 2022 and aims to overcome some of the unique challenges that queer people face when accessing or providing support.
Respect is one of our core values, and our LGBT Network ensures we respect everyone for their true authentic self.
The Network is open to all Carr Gomm staff and the people we support. It is a safe space created by LGBT people for LGBT people. Allies are also welcome!
We run events that bring staff and the people we support together. For example, we have had craft afternoons making Pride banners and inclusive Valentine’s Cards. And last year, we attended Scottish Pride for the first time!
We hope to host more events soon and are currently working towards achieving The LGBT Charter Programme run by LGBT Youth Scotland.
The LGBT+ Network is supported through Futures funding. If you would like to make a donation, click here.
