Our partnership with OGX began this year when they selected LGBT Foundation as their charity partner, raising funds for our Women's Programme through sales of limited edition Pride 'Love' bottles.
Our Women’s Programme supports and empowers women to improve their health and wellbeing; increase skills, knowledge and confidence; reduce feelings of isolation; and ensure inclusion in all aspects of our work. This service provides ground breaking research into issues affecting LGBT women and the inequalities faced by these communities.
Paul Williams from OGX says,
‘We are really excited about our partnership with LGBT Foundation. The OGX haircare brand has always been about self-expression, individuality and being true to yourself. We are passionate about supporting women from all communities, particularly LGBT + women who are underrepresented. This is why proceeds from our limited edition LOVE collection will be donating up to £50,000 to the charity to enable them to continue their LGBT Foundation women’s programme throughout 2020.’
Debra Nixon, Assistant Director of Self-Generated Income says,
"One of our objectives for the Women’s Programme is to Secure Our Future: to ensure that the needs of lesbian, bi and trans women are continued to be met. Our current funding stream ends in March 2020 and we have been looking for a suitable partner who we could work in collaboration with to enable this essential service to continue. This exciting partnership with OGX, alongside their generous funding will ensure that we are able to continue delivering services for women. It was important to us that any funding we secured aligned to the values of the Women’s Programme and OGX believe in a world where everyone is free to be which is a perfect match for our Women’s Programme."
