LGBT Youth Scotland’s Gold Charter

By April 2, 2024 No Comments

Rossie is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. We feel both privileged and proud to have LGBT Youth Scotland as a partner and have recently achieved LGBT Youth Scotland’s Gold Charter status. This evidences that equality and diversity are at the heart of our work, ensuring each young person feels welcomed and celebrated when they come to live with us.

It is incredibly important to us that each young person knows our support is unequivocal. We are also delighted to have had some of our work selected and shared with other agencies as ‘exemplars’ of good practice. Please visit https://www.rossie.org.uk/lgbt-charter-programme-going-for-gold/ to read more about our journey.

Evidencing and delivering services which have equality, diversity and inclusion at their centre is an ongoing task and we are not complacent. Our LGBT Champions are identifying the next steps on how we best support LGBTQ+ inclusion at Rossie and our wider community.

This Award has special significance and huge importance for everyone at Rossie – it proves we are a caring, compassionate, and respectful organisation.
