We are an established independent LGBT forum of eight elected unpaid volunteers working with the LGBT Community to address and improve safety and access issues throughout Brighton & Hove.
We undertake cultural, educational and social safety community activities and any type of LGBT community/inclusion and accessibility initiative.
The LGBT Community Safety Forum was formed to give the community a much needed voice on a wide range of safety issues in Brighton and Hove.
We are here to act as a bridge between the community and statutory services such as the city council and Sussex police and to enable there to be more accountability and transparency of the services provided.
It's very much a forum where members of the public can have their say and can ask direct questions to those in charge of community safety in the city.
We are here to question, to get answers, to probe further and to insist on improvements on service delivery.
We're also there to bring together the numerous other LGBT groups across the city under the one umbrella of Community Safety and Inclusion. Only by combining our efforts can we become a more powerful voice for the LGBT community and achieve that much more.
