Our Networks and Partnerships

We exist to support our Members and one of the many ways in which we can do that is by providing the platforms, structures and space for them to work together. We are leaders in creating and facilitating networks which enable groups and organisations to work together on both a practical and strategic level. Take a look at some of our Networks and Partnerships and find out how membership with us can get your group better connected.

LGBT Consortium Members Network

LGBT Consortium Members make up the largest Network of LGBT group, projects and organisations in the UK. Over the last 2 years, LGBT Consortium has brought in over £1million for its Membership by brokering collaborative projects, funding and contracts. This is usually facilaited through themed Networks. 
With around 300 Members, the LGBT Consortium Network offers organisations of all sizes the chance to connect, collaborate and codeliver projects and services. From sharing best practice to accessing peer support, from being part of large national projects to codelivering on small local funded projects - Members use the network in a variety of ways.
