Relationships and partnerships:

Last uupdated: 22/10/2017

The Network has been created with extensive support from across Dorset’s LGB&T communities and groups and organisations.

However, to respond to the needs and issues our communities have and represent to us to voice effectively, we work with an ever growing number of public, private, and voluntary sector organisations to implement solutions to the needs our communities have.
