Working together to improve the lives of At-Risk LGBT+ Adults in Bristol
Thursday July 5th, 1:30 – 4:30
Unitarian Chapel, Brunswick Square, Bristol, BS2 8PE
Join our Bristol Hate Crime and Discrimination Services Provider Forum to learn about what we are doing to support those who suffer homophobic, biphobic, transphobic hate crime and how we help support the difficult issues they may also be facing.
Hear about the work that Avon and Somerset Police are doing to increase provision and understanding within the force, through their new Gender Identity Working Group.
Hear from other services about the great work they are doing and help they need.
Find out what is happening in the community to support those who are most at-risk.
Find out what is still needed in Bristol and how we are working to find resources.
We also want to hear from you about what you think is needed, what we could do better and how you could help.
Take part in our workshops about the above and network.
Refreshments are available.
We will be bringing a speaker and microphone so that all voices can be heard!
About LGBT Bristol
LGBT Bristol works to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to become actively involved in community life. We pride ourselves in challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the wider community and helping to promote understanding of equality and inclusion of LGBT+ people.
We also campaign, consult and provide information. Each year LGBT Bristol celebrates and supports the major calendar events in the City’s LGBT+ life such as, LGBT History Month, IDAHO, Pride Bristol, Trans Day of Remembrance and the LGBT Film Festival.
Further funding cuts mean we needed to move again and our new office is : The Park Centre, Daventry Road, Knowle, Bristol, BS4 1DQ.
Many thanks to the St Paul’s Learning Centre team who gave LGBT Bristol such a warm and friendly service while we were with them.
Our office telephone number: 07804 945 849 (Tues – Thurs only)
Recruitment of LGBT Bristol Trustees
- Do you have ideas, some skills or experiences that you think would have helped you and may help other LGBT+ people?
- Would you like to expand your network of LGBT+ people, both socially and professionally?
- Do you believe that equality for everyone is essential?
The most essential skill that you will have is that you are a member of Bristol’s LGBT+ communities and that, simply put, you want more for LGBT+ people in Bristol. We will ask you to commit to attending four meetings and one annual general meeting per year.
If this is for you, please contact Sarah-Louise Minter for further information about LGBT Bristol’s objectives and projects at firstname.lastname@example.org
Walk Out (in partnership with Walk for Health)
We are very grateful for the funding of this project to ‘Awards for All’ and Lloyds Bank Foundation. We are working alongside Walk for Health providing an LGBT walking group with the aim of reducing isolation for disabled and older LGBT people.
When is the next WalkOut?
Since June 2013, we have been working with our partners in the provision of Bristol’s Hate Crime Services, which is now the Bristol Hate Crime and Discrimination Service.
If you would like to anonymously report a hate crime, please follow this link.
