Proud 2 b parents are extremely pleased to announce that we will partnering in a new initiative to tackle hate crime with, 31 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) organisations from across England and Wales. Funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the partnership will aim to increase the reporting of LGBT hate crimes and incidents and improve the support available to those targeted.

The LGBT Consortium is the Lead Partner in this Partnership and is the umbrella body for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Voluntary and Community Organisations in the United Kingdom

The partnership will empower LGBT communities through campaigns and information resources, as well as building new independent advice services
