Bath Sexual Orientation Scheme Consultation

Bath & North East Council has recently commissioned a consultation with the lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) communities in Bath & North East Somerset. The aim of the consultation is to identify the issues which local LGB people face - these issues will then inform the development of the Council's first Sexual Orientation Equality Scheme. The Scheme will be designed to address discrimination and ensure equality in the Council as a service provider and an employer.

As part of the consultation a confidential discussion group will be taking place to explore the views and experiences of local LGB people. The discussion will be taking place on Wednesday 12th November from 6:30- 8:30pm, in Bath.

We're looking for up to 10 participants, who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual and who live, work, study or socialise in the Bath & North East Somerset area.

The discussion will be completely confidential (attendees' names will not be passed back to the Council). It will be facilitated by Katherine Cowan, an independent researcher who is carrying out this work for the Council. You may remember Katherine from when she spoke at our LGBT History Month media event in February.

If you would like to attend, or if you would like more information, please contact Katherine directly: mailto:katherine@katherinecowan.net or by telephone 07949 777731.
