Durham County Council wants to help improve the physical, mental and social wellbeing of LGBT+ people in County Durham. “LGBT+” refers to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. More recently, the + has been added to be inclusive of all identities including people who identify as non-binary, questioning, intersex and asexual.
If you identify as LGBT+, are a friend/family member of someone who identifies as LGBT+, or work for an organisation dealing with the public (and therefore LGBT+ people) we want your views!
To find out more or to take part in the consultation please visit http://www.durham.gov.uk/consultation by 29th June 2018.
The survey for people working in a public facing organisation has 8 questions so should be quick to complete and asks about priorities, information needs or workforce development needs.
The results will be used to identify actions Public Health or other partners can take to improve the wellbeing of people who identify as LGBT+. This could, for example, involve providing relevant information/training to help organisations become more LGBT+ friendly.
