LGBT Fed AGM 14th Dec 2017 @ Irwin Mitchell.....

This year's annual general meeting included contributions from Louise, Director, The LGBT Fed who welcomed a full house of members, both long-standing and new ones and service providers from member organisations in the North East.

Louise welcomed everyone. Our LGBT and Human Rights reprentative from Irwin Mitchell, Ashlee Coates also gave us a warm reception. Louise informed us about the full programme of exciting events and activities which LGBT Fed developed and contributed to this year. 2017 was full of active engagement, education and awareness, networking and fun. 

We are proud to say that we participated in Pride celebrations in Newcastle and Durham; trained up LGBT Hate Crime Advocates, delivered HBT Training in schools and involved members in workshops such as poetry writing and sign language. We continue to work with and maintain positive partnerships with our supporters Northumbria PCC, Awards 4 All, Ben Hoare Bell, and Nasty Women to name just a few.

A highlight of the evening were the ideas put forward by members towards next year's programming and of course our annual quiz. Thanks a bunch Louise 

LGBT Fed wishes to thank all our members and partners for their commitment and investment in making the North East a safer, friendlier and more informed place for LGBT people to be. 

Thanks to everyone who attended this event. Your presence and contributions made this year's event a successful and enjoyable one. 

Special thanks to Irwin Mitchell for hosting us at their brilliant location and for the catering and goody bags! We really appreciated it. 

Looking forward to next year. Watch this space!
