Billie Lewis, Chair of the Forum said: “Elections for posts on the B&H LGBT CSF committee will also take place tonight. If you wish to stand for committee arrive at the meeting early and register your interest with the secretary.

“We’re here to bring together the many LGBT+ groups across the city under the one umbrella of ‘Community Safety and Inclusion’. Only by combining our efforts and working together can we become a more powerful voice for the LGBT+ communities which will enable us to achieve so much more.”

B&H LGBT CSF is an established independent LGBT+ forum of eight elected unpaid volunteers working with the + Communities to address and improve safety and access issues throughout Brighton & Hove.

The forum undertakes cultural, educational and social safety community activities and any type of LGBT community/inclusion and accessibility initiatives.

The LGBT Community Safety Forum was formed to give the community a much-needed voice on a wide range of safety issues in Brighton and Hove and to serve as a bridge between the LGBT+ communities and statutory service providers such as the city council and Sussex Police, to enable there to be more accountability and transparency of the services they provide.

It’s very much a forum where members of the public can have their say and can ask direct questions to those in charge of community safety in the city.
