Equality forums

We support several forums that play a vital role in overseeing and improving our work on equality and diversity.

The Disability Involvement Group monitors progress and provides consultation on disability issues. It is made up of representatives from the community and voluntary sector.

To get involved or to request an agenda item please contact the Equality and Employability Team.

Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender Consultative and Scrutiny Forum

The LGBT Forum meets quarterly. This Forum is made up of representatives from the LGBT community and voluntary and community organisations and provides advice and consultancy on Council policies and services.

If you would like to discuss a service, policy or issue with this group please contact the Equality and Employability Team.
