Supporting the LGBT+ community
We’re making our Council LGBT+ friendly and supportive to LGBT+ staff and customers.
In May we fly the rainbow flag at Castle House, celebrating the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, Interphobia and Biphobia (Idahobit). Organisations around the world join forces with allies, activists and campaigners to spread the message of acceptance and stand in solidarity with victims of discrimination.
We also provide training to staff help them to understand the issues facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans people, and those who may be questioning their gender identity.
LGBT+ Nottinghamshire provides specialist advice and support to young people aged 11-25 who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and any other sexual orientation or gender identity, or who may be questioning this.
The service offers one-to-one, group and counselling services for young people and their families across Nottinghamshire. If you’re over the age of 13 you can self-refer to this service.
They also provide training and consultancy services for professionals across the private, public and voluntary sectors.
