We are very pleased to share that in recognition of the work at multiple levels, and taking a number of forms, of the Network Lead Officer, and Chair over the past 18 months.
Early in History Month, HMP The Verne contacted us to share that they would as a tangible evidence of their support for LGBT+ outreach, inclusion and anti-discrimination through their work with us at the Network, would be fundraising for us, with one of their officers leading on this wonderful initiative (for security and confidentiality & GDPR reasons we have not included identifying particulars in the image above).
Subsequently, the Network has provided a Certificate of Appreciation & Thanks for this greatly appreciated LGBT History Month 2021 of the staff of HMP The Verne. The Network is very pleased to be working with HM Prison & Probation Service (HMPPS) and their team at HMP The Verne. We also working with neighbouring HMP & YOI Portland and the broader HMPPS Avon & South Dorset Prisons Group. This work accords with the Network’s guiding remit of engaging tangibly for LGBT+ inclusion, dignity, and equality with often overlooked/poorly engaged with & represented, as well as particularly vulnerable and isolated sections of our LGBT+ Community.
Thank you so Much HMP The Verne for your commitment to LGBT+ inclusive & equality values!
