Today we had a preliminary meeting for the creation of the new Lewisham LGBT Forum. The next public meeting will be on Tuesday 26th July 2016 from 6pm to 8pm at Catford Civic Suite. We would like all members of the community who are interested in future events, issues they need to feed back to organisations, ideas on campaigning, discussions that they feel need to be raised etc to come along.
The aims of the Lewisham LGBT Forum is to be able to come together to plan activities around LGBT issues, provide a forum for residents to talk directly with statutory services and for collaboration on joint LGBT initiatives. The forum aims to bring people together who are interested in local LGBT issues so things can be planned in advance, so people can network, raise the profile of LGBT issues in Lewisham, have a coordinated voice on local equalities policy, training, work with statutory organisations etc and to promote LGBT inclusion and community building.
