LGBT Foundation, formerly known as The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (The LGF), is a national charity delivering a wide range of services to lesbian, gay and bisexual and trans (LGBT) communities.
We believe in a fair and equal society where all LGBT people can achieve their full potential. We are passionate about the work we do with LGBT communities and we want to be as inclusive as possible to ensure LGBT voices are heard and their needs are met.
Since our announcement to become an LGBT inclusive charity in August 2014, we have been working hard to include bisexual and trans people more visibly in their services.
This journey has involved changing our name from The LGF to LGBT Foundation - we feel this better represents who we are, what we do and what we mean to our service users and supporters.
Our aim is to achieve change with and on behalf of LGBT people and continue to meet their needs by providing vital services. We want to continue to offer support to those who need us the most through inclusive services to LGBT people.
LGBT Foundation’s Trans Programme of work started on 1st October 2015, after 2 years of consultation, forming a Trans Advisory Panel, and funding from the Big Lottery. We have 4 key objectives:
• Improved health and wellbeing of trans people
• Increased skills and confidence of trans people
• Increased knowledge, empowerment and resilience of trans people
• Reduced feelings of loneliness and isolation of trans people
http://lgbt.foundation/trans is our main webpage, where you’ll find links to our Trans Resource Bank, What’s On? page of local and national events, alongside a whole host of initiatives that we’ll be working on over the coming year.
We have our own monthly Trans Programme eBulletin, TransMission, which has a variety of articles, personal accounts, and poetry created by the trans community for the trans community. It’ll also be the first place you’ll hear about many of the exciting events and schemes we’re currently planning which brings together and empowers the trans community.
