Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender Staff Network Group (ALLOUT)

Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender Staff Network Group

ALLOUT - The Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender Staff Network Group

The group was relaunched in February 2010 and renamed ALLOUT in 2013.

ALLOUT is fully inclusive and welcomes all Lesbian,Gay, Bisexual, Trans, non binary staff (plus all other identities and groups under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella) as well as anyone who may have an interest or wish to support LGBT+ colleagues, friends and relatives.  We also encourage those with  intersectional identities, those who ar epart of marginalised LGBT+ groups or people questioning their sexual orientation to find out more and to join in the work and activities of ALLOUT.

We run a confidential mailing list as well as organising different events at relevant points throughout the year.  As well as being consulted on policy development and review, the group can contribute to the equality, diversity and inclusion committee (via the EDI Forum) where any issues affecting LGBT+ staff can be put forward.  Members of staff (whether formally a member of the group or not) can contact the chair for confidential support and advice on any LGBT+ issue.  The group's Terms of Reference can be seen in the following document:

You can join the confidential mailing list by contacting:
