Prioud to Provide

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, recently ranked the UK’s most LGBT-inclusive employer by Stonewall, is hosting a major national conference exploring the need for public services that are truly tailored to the needs of LGBT communities.

Proud to Provide is taking place at Chester’s Storyhouse arts centre on
Wednesday May 15th to coincide with International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHoBiT) 2019.

Facilitated by BBC North West’s Graham Liver, the day will include:

- a keynote speech from Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive of Stonewall

- a presentation by Carl Austin-Behan, formerly the first openly gay Lord Mayor of Manchester, on his work as LGBT Advisor to Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester

- an overview of the challenges still faced by LGBT people accessing public services, from the influential charity Opening Doors London
case studies from Gentoo, Cheshire Constabulary and Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service on their work to improve the LGBT service user experience – more to be confirmed shortly

- a private sector perspective from Lloyds Banking Group, who’ve worked hard to make their products and service inclusive of LGBT identities

- an interactive workshop on inclusive service design and a thought-provoking panel discussion in the afternoon

- pastries on arrival, lunch and refreshments throughout the day and a chance for networking in around Storyhouse’s impressive roof-top Garret Theatre.
