- Providing a link between LGBT people and other agencies involved in working in LGBT issues and initiatives related to equality & diversity
- Responding to consultations and surveys – with a view to being the voice of the LGBT community and helping inform policymakers of community needs, good practice, etc.
- Raising awareness of LGBT issues
We do this by networking events, and attending the meetings of other organisations such as Police Scotland, Waverley Care, conferences by Highland Council, NHS Highland and other LGBT organisations. In addition, the very existence and active presence of the Forum as a charity in the Highlands can have an impact in its own right.
COMMITTEE / TRUSTEES
Committee members are also charity trustees.
Committee meetings are usually held once a month at the Spectrum Centre in Inverness. All members are welcome. If you would like to join us, please get in touch.
The Forum is an independent, self-governing organisation, and is a registered charity.
In April 2008, the Highland LGBT Forum was awarded charitable status by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR). The Highland LGBT Forum is a charity registered in Scotland No. SC039528.
