LGBT Consortium team up with NCVO to bring Members more...

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 - 11:30

Groups that support lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people are having a big impact with a small budget and we want to make sure they get all the support they need.

We are working with the National Council for Voluntary Services to offer free affiliate Memberships to small low income LGBT groups, so far, the free NCVO Membership offer is open to LGBT groups in England that have an annual income of under £50,000 and can be accessed through Membership with the LGBT Consortium.

The groups that make up the LGBT Consortiums Membership support and deliver services to over 3.2 million LGBT people, their friends and families in the UK. From the small grassroots groups run by an army of over 4000 volunteers to the larger organisations that create nearly 500 jobs within the sector, they are all working hard to change and improve lives. This means that when people invest in LGBT Consortium they are investing in LGBT communities across the UK. 

In a recent analysis of its membership, LGBT Consortium reports that 64% of its Members deliver their vital services on less than £10,000 a year.  For many of those groups though, it not always about accessing money but accessing support and information!

Paul Roberts, our CEO said that ‘at a time when funding is so tight for all of us, we are committed to helping LGBT groups get the most out of what is on offer. We hope that by enabling them to access this additional support we are making it a little easier for them to continue delivering vital services and support to those who desperately need it’

Both LGBT Consortium and NCVO offer a wide range of services that can help LGBT groups and projects operate and deliver services.

To enquire about a Membership please contact Vicky vicky.worthington@lgbtconsortium.org.uk
