At our Partnerships Event on 31st January we welcomed seven new services/organisations which have achieved the Lancashire LGBT Quality Mark. They were: Renaissance, Carers Link Lancashire, The Liberty Centre, and four Barnardo’s projects – Bay 6, Lancashire Young Carers’ Service, Include Me 2 and Building Better Opportunities. We also recognised Brook Lancashire as having achieved “Working Towards the Quality Mark” status. Congratulations to all the organisatiuons on their success.

The Partnerships Event, which was held at Preston North End’s Guild Lounge, celebrated the work we have done with many partner agencies since the beginning of our current project. We welcomed guests from Clinical Commissioning Groups, local authorities, Healthwatch, Public Health, Lancashire Police, CAMHS, Midlands & Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit and a range of voluntary and community sector organisations including our new Quality Mark holders and others currently preparing for assessment.
