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.

From sharing best practice collaborating on projects, from being part of large nationally led, locally delivered projects to codelivering on small local one off projects - our Members use our network in a variety of ways.
