Improving mainstream services for LGBT+ people

eQuality works with service providers in the UK to improve the experience LGBT+ people receive, and to showcase examples of best practice.

The eQuality Award is a charter mark that shows organisations have high standards of service for their lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) clients.  Organisations can use the quality standards to assess how effective they are at providing services which are inclusive of LGBT+ people.

The eQuality Charter Mark will show your LGBT+ clients that they are welcome in your service and that you are working in line with equalities legislation.

What’s Involved?

Training

Book your eQuality training today and receive a full-day, or half-day session which will explore topical issues, such as:

  • Legal context for LGBT+ inclusion
  • Historical Context
  • Understanding Heteronormativity
  • Exploring Language and Terms
  • Personal Leadership
  • Case Studies
  • SMART Action Planning and Next Steps

Assessment

There are three levels of quality standards in the eQuality Charter Mark:

1. Level One is a self-assessment tool that allows you to examine where your organisation currently is in relation to LGBT+ inclusion;

2. Level Two is where you start planning for any changes and developments that need to be implemented in your organisation;

3. Level Three means you have implemented the necessary changes and are able to evidence that you are providing a ‘best practice’ service for your LGBT+ clients.
