What is the LGBT Charter for Workplace?
The LGBT Charter for Workplaces is an equalities accreditation programme that enables your company to proactively include LGBTQ+ people in every aspect of your work, protecting your staff and providing high quality service to your customers or service users.
Being accredited with our LGBT Charter enables you to send a positive message, with confidence, that your workplace is a champion of inclusion where LGBTQ+ employees, customers, or service users will be safe, supported and included.
How does it work?
The programme has been developed to support your workplace to undertake training and review policies, practice and resources to make sure that you’re not only meeting legislative needs, but are also as inclusive as you can be.
By building a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate work undertaken in line with our LGBT Charter standards, the programme provides an opportunity to critically evaluate the service user experience; opening the doors to honest and constructive conversations about how to refine existing processes and develop new ways of working.
You will be guided through the programme with the help of our expert Charter Managers, step- by- step LGBT Charter workbook and your dedicated Charter Manager who will be there to advise you throughout the process.
The Charter journey of compiling a portfolio is a process that lasts up to 12 months. Upon successful completion of the programme, the Charter accreditation is then valid for 3 years.
This three-year cycle creates opportunities for organisations to renew and refresh their training, policies and practice at more regular intervals, to reflect evolving policy and staff turnover across this time period
