LGBT Charter Success

9 Nov 2022 Article Image

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the LGBT Silver Charter Mark from LGBT Youth Scotland, in recognition of our efforts to promote inclusion.

This award means a lot to us as equality and diversity are fundamental to our work. Thank you to everyone at LGBT Youth Scotland for your support. We will continue to learn and develop to make sure our organisation is as safe and inclusive as possible for LGBT survivors, visitors, and staff.

Amy, our support worker who was leading on the development of the Charter for the organisation said, "I really enjoyed the journey of the LGBT Charter. On a professional level I believe we have improved our inclusivity and we have improved our awareness, and enjoyed working with the GWA team to bring it together. On a personal level this was important to me to work hard on as an LGBT ally and it means a lot to me to have been part of the success story of our silver award.”

Aileen, our Manager, commented "We are all delighted to have achieved Silver Charter Mark Award with LGBT Youth Scotland, we thoroughly enjoyed the process and learnt a lot about our organisation. We particularly enjoyed linking with our friends at Four Pillars and joining in at Grampian Pride Parade. We are looking forward to being a part of more events in the future and continuing our journey of inclusivity."
