LGBT Chartermark Update

We are working towards our Silver LGBT Charter as part of our work to becoming a more inclusive and accessible service. We are taking steps to proactively include LGBT people in every aspect of our work, protecting our staff and providing high quality service.

Our action plan to achieve this includes training for staff and a review of policies, practice, and resources to make sure that we're not only meeting legislative needs but are as inclusive as we can be.

Progress so far includes:

We hope that by working towards the Silver LGBT Charter, we to send a positive message that the Compass Centre is a champion of LGBT inclusion where LGBT employees, customers, or service users will be safe, supported and included.

We believe it’s important that LGBTI+ survivors don’t feel silenced about what’s happened to them or what support they need. It is important that LGBTI+ people see their identities, experiences and issues reflected in information about sexual violence. LGBTI+ people who experience sexual violence know what an impact it has on them and how they see themselves.

We plan to provide another progress update next quarter 😊
