The Rainbow Network at C&I

Category: Events, event, LGBT, LGBT event, Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust, Rainbow Network, Inclusion Events


The Rainbow Network at C&I aims to create a supportive working environment and policy framework for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) colleagues. The Network also helps Trust staff to understand the needs of LGBT+ individuals within the community.

Aims of The Rainbow Network

  • To work with the Trust to eliminate discrimination experienced by LGBT+ staff and to promote general equality of opportunity.
  • To influence policy making and monitor existing policies to ensure that the LGBT+ equality perspective is proactively considered.
  • To provide a support function to colleagues, through the development of networks and meetings, where issues can be openly discussed. Some support may involve signposting staff to external services or staff side representatives.
  • To provide confidential support and advice to all staff, not just those whose may identify as LGBT+.
  • To develop and maintain a network that provides support and promotes diversity generally within our workforce.
  • To support the Trust with the training of staff at all levels so they can better understand the perspective and needs of LGBT+ staff and service users.
  • To gain and share an understanding of the experiences of LGBT+ staff and service users, and highlight any health inequalities that influence service delivery.
  • To celebrate the diversity of the workforce by participating in national and local events such as community events and national LGBT+ initiatives.
  • To promote C&I as a mental healthcare provider and employer within the local LGBT+ communities.
  • To promote opportunities for social networking.
