LGBTQ Policy Bank

Welcome to the LGBT HIP Policy Bank. Writing policies can often seem like a daunting task to community and voluntary organisation so we have worked with local LGBT organisations to try and take the stress out of it.

On the right of the page, you can find the LGBT HIP Policy Toolkit, which you are welcome to download and share. We have collected top tips to help you along the way with preparing, structuring and reviewing your policies.

On the menu to the left of the page, we have collated a Policy Bank, with policies from local LGBTQ groups. You are welcome to use these policies as a starting block for your own policies. Please do remember that policies are not one-size-fits all, so do make sure you adapt policies to meet you organisation or groups needs.

Take Part!

Please help us to share the knowledge and grow this database. Do you have a policy that you would like to share with other LGBTQ groups? Please email meg.lewis@switchboard.org.uk to submit your policies.

Finally, a big thank you to all the local organisations and groups who have contributed to this resource- we hope you find it helpful!
