Monitoring Sexual Orientation, Gender and Trans Status

Profile Picture

Over the last two decades, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) community has seen legislative change which has led to greater acceptance.

Championing sexual orientation and trans statis monitoring for service users and staff across all public services is a key an organisational priority for LGBT Foundation.
