Darren Knight

I’m a Trustee for Lancashire LGBT because I genuinely believe that we must ensure that people should have access to the support that they need locally, on their doorstep, when they need it.
Lancashire LGBT influences, educates and informs individuals, services and decision makers in order to make that happen.

I became a trustee for Lancashire LGBT as I recognise the need of minority groups to have access to the support and resources they need, we have a unique position as such we have the ability and capability within Lancashire LGBT to positively impact people’s lives.  As a professional individual with a varied career, this allows me help guide the charity in a positive direction, develop the charity and impact people’s lives.
