Rape Crisis Scotland working towards LGBT Chart Mark
Rape Crisis Scotland continues to work towards the LGBT Charter Mark in order to ensure that LGBT issues are mainstreamed and an integral part of our service. This will allow LGBT people to feel that they can contact us with confidence, in the knowledge that they will be fully included, valued and supported (you can find out more about the LGBT Charter of Rights here ). We continue to have discussions with LGBT Youth Scotland and to review our service as part of this process to see where we are making progress and to identify what steps we still need to take. If you would like to find out more or help us do this, we’d be very glad to hear from you – just email us at info@rapecrisisscotland.org.ukRead More
