As well as our Training Packages and Lancashire LGBT Quality Mark we work with a range of organisations who have asked for our help in better understanding the needs of LGBTQ+ people when accessing their services as well as the needs of their LGBTQ+ employees.
Since 2012, we’ve worked with organisations from the Voluntary and Public sectors and some work has resulted in partnership working opportunities. Requests have been varied: from support in putting together an LGBT staff network; integrating an ethos of LGBTQ+ equality into service delivery; how to support a staff member or service user undergoing gender transition or help integrating the needs of LGBTQ+ people in planning for strategy or policy development.
Developing a partnership agreement [with Lancashire LGBT] has given us access to a range of knowledge and expertise which we previously lacked. It also sends an important message to our LGBT services users that we are developing more work around LGBT issues.
For us, working with Lancashire LGBT has helped us to significantly raise our profile and improve our work with LGBT young people in the Blackpool area.
We currently work with:
- Leeds Gender Identity Service (as part of our Partnership, we host their satellite clinic as well as their Gender Outreach Workers)
- Public Health Blackburn with Darwen, Public Health Blackpool, Public Health Lancashire
- Lancashire Constabulary
- Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust
