Strategic engagement - Engages actively in a number of Gloucestershire’s boards, networks and groups which feed into the decision-making processes for delivery of services;
Youth work - Runs a social group for young people aged 14-18 who identify as LGBTQ+, and/or who may be questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity;
Support services - Available for people of any age who have concerns about issues in relation to their sexual orientation or gender identity, their families and friends.
Hate Crime and Incidents
CHALLENGE IT - REPORT IT - STOP IT
GayGlos has been involved for many years in raising the profile of Hate Incidents and Crimes. The charity played an instrumental role in the development of the County's 5 Year (2016-21) Strategy for responding to the issues. Gay Glos continues to be part of the Strategic Partnership and Steering/Working Group in delivering against the Strategy.
