Pride Community Network

The aims of Pride Community Network are ground breaking as it works to connect the diverse LGBT+ community to opportunities and resources, supporting their vision in a safe and supportive environment.

Pride Community Network will:


  • Establish the first LGBT+ business and media centre in the UK which will be the focal point for the LGBT+ community
  • Support fledgling businesses with a strong mentoring and support network by removing barriers that can hold members of the LGBT+ community back, so they can go as far as their hard work and talent can take them
  • Engage with the transgender community to develop a programme that will break down barriers in the work place
  • Provide year-long training and work-experience programmes for long-term unemployed members of the LGBT+ community with a view to full-time employment at the end of the programme
  • Provide equipped office space with marketing and communications support including radio and video production


  • Engage with hard to reach members of the LGBT+ community by providing an outreach service for those that currently feel excluded, vulnerable or isolated
  • Engage with the 16-25-year-old group that need support or a safe space to explore their sexuality and encourage entrepreneurship
  • Deliver education and awareness programmes through seminars and focus groups held in the centre
  • Partner with businesses and organisations to deliver a support service that promotes best practice amongst their workforce to support LGBT+ employees through a programme of seminars and workshops
  • Work with schools and colleges to promote LGBT+ diversity and promote inclusivity


  • Provide a home for Pride Radio 89.2fm, its diverse range of programming and a space to develop its volunteer scheme
  • Develop online and video/digital broadcast
  • Foster relationships with the wider community to build bridges through active engagement using outdoor broadcasts
  • Provide an authoritative voice to public and private sector businesses and organisations on LGBT+ issues
