LGBT+ Forum at BSUH

LGBTQ+ Forum

The forum supports the Trust in raising awareness of the needs of LGBTQ+ staff, as a critical friend.

 The members of the forum are LGBTQ+ staff, volunteers and allies that work across all roles and levels at the Trust.

 What the LGBTQ+ Forum does:

  • Provide confidential support to all employees on LGBTQ+ issues.
  • Organise social and networking events.
  • Advise on Trust policies and training – so they’re inclusive and supportive of LGBTQ+ staff.
  • Celebrate LGBTQ+ history, lives and contributions (eg. LGBTQ+ History Month, Trans Awareness Week).
  • Organise BSUH @ Brighton & Hove Pride and Trans-Pride.
  • Run programmes relevant to LGBTQ+ staff (eg. health & wellbeing/mental health, LGBTQ+ Mentoring).
  • Produce a monthly newsletter.
  • Work closely with the Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Team, and BSUH Charity.
  • We’re also part of a University of York research study into NHS LGBTQ+ Staff Networks – the difference they make to health and wellbeing, and how this contributes to best patient care.

Here are some reasons why you might want to get involved:

  • It’s a great way to meet new people, network and feel part of a community.
  • It’s our chance to support LGBTQ+  colleagues – who maybe aren’t yet ‘out’ at work, or need advice with being LGBTQ+ in the workplace.
  • It’s interesting, a chance to learn and develop.
  • It’s a way of getting involved and helping BSUH be the best we can for LGBTQ+ people.
