Switchboard to create new Community Steering Group

Besi Besemar February 18, 2019

Switchboard are creating a new Community Steering Group, to put the voice of local LGBT+ lived experience at the heart of their work.

SWITCHBOARD are on the lookout for LGBT+ volunteers who care about equality to take part. The group will meet four times a year to guide their work and make sure their services meet the needs of all groups within the LGBT+ communities.

They are holding an information session where you can find out more about the project, provide input into how you think it should be run, and find out how you can get involved on Tuesday, March 5 from 6-7.30pm at Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton.

On the evening there will be a short presentation, application packs to take away and plenty of opportunities to provide your own input.

Refreshments will be provided and local travel expenses can be covered for you to attend the session.

The event is for anyone who identifies as LGBT+ and lives, studies, works or socialises in Brighton & Hove. You don’t need any qualifications or work experience to take part.

LGBT+ people from the BAME/PoC, trans* and disability communities in particular are encouraged to attend.

The venue is wheelchair accessible, and gender neutral toilets are available. If you have any particular access requirement email:
