Derbyshire LGBT+ offers support for young people, resources and training for professionals.

The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) network was setup in 2006 to support LGBT employees. The network meets regularly and its meetings are open to any LGBT employee.

The LGBT network exists to raise the profile of LGBT people within the workforce, to support us to improve our policies and services so that they are more LGBT friendly, and to help raise awareness of homophobia and advance equality of opportunity for LGBT people across Derbyshire.
