PRIDE@CNWL – the Trust’s LGBT+ Staff Network - run regular LGBT+ awareness training for staff in the Trust, as well as dedicated training on how to become an LGBT+ ally.
Recently they were invited to run an external session by Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre following a discussion they had with one of the network’s committee members.
Sofia Venuti, Co Chair of the Network and Anne Power, CNWL’s Staff Network Lead, headed over to run a session that they’d adapted to staff at the centre.
Following the visit Richard Watson, Senior Coach and Equine Trainer, at the centre said:
In February 2021, the Trust became the first to launch Progress Rainbow flags for CNWL staff to wear to indicate they are a safe listening ear for LGBT+ staff, volunteers, patients and carers. You can read more about the reason for changing the flag here.
If CNWL staff would like to request a local training session or some of the new badges get in touch with the network at email@example.com
The network can occasionally offer external training too and are happy to share ideas with local community groups to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and support.
