Stuart Rutlidge (Secretary)

I am proud to have been a part of Lancashire LGBT for a number of years, to see it grow to what it has become today, in the knowledge that the services and support it provides has had a positive impact on people’s lives and look forward to continue my involvement in the future.


Denise Partington (Treasurer)

I invest my time, energy and expertise in Lancashire LGBT because I strongly believe that its work is an important contribution to the health and well-being of LGB&/orT people.


Ian Ashton (Acting Chair)

I became a Trustee because I value difference and feel that there is still a need to raise awareness and improve the lives of our LGB&T Community.


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.


 Sue Capstick

I am delighted to become a Trustee for Lancashire LGBT. It is vital that the voice of people from LGB+T communities are heard and Lancashire LGBT can influence policy in real ways which improves the lives people live.”
