The LGBTQ+ Network exists to empower all LGBTQ+ staff to achieve their full potential through creating a positive and supportive working environment.

The purpose of the group is to raise awareness and the profile of LGBTQ+ issues for staff in the workplace, ensuring that there are visible role models for LGBTQ+ staff at different levels of the organisation.

The Menopause Network recognises that menopause can bring various challenges to those experiencing it, which can impact both physical and emotional wellbeing. 

The network seeks to advocate for individuals living through the menopause while creating connections through informal conversations about menopause, held in an open and supportive environment.

Parents and Carers

Parenthood and caregiving bring a unique set of joys but also challenges, impacting both personal and professional aspects of people's lives. The Parents and Carers Network was established to raise awareness of the needs of working parents and carers, while offering support to those who may need it. 

The network is for all types of parents and carers including birth parents, stepparents, grandparents and parents through adoption or fostering.
