You are invited to help shape the future direction of Teesside’s leading LGBT service and become the first set of delegates to take part in the LGBT Advance – Training and Consultancy elite training package.

All delegates will receive a ‘Strengthening Strategic Partnerships and LGBT+ Inclusion’ Award presented by Stonewalls North East Programmes Officer, Philippa Scrafton.

There’s no doubt that this event will sell out quickly, do not miss your opportunity to take part and bring home an LGBT Alliance Award for your organisation.

Please see below for an update on the event, regarding COVID-19:

As a result of the recent guidance from the Government in relation to the COVID-19 virus, we have unfortunately decided to postpone the LGBT Alliance and Awards Ceremony.

As you may be aware the event was due to take place in The Crypt at the Middlesbrough Town Hall on the 29th of April, as it stands now the venue has closed its doors until further notice.

Based on that and our own regulations around social distancing, we are planning to reschedule this event to later in the year.

The nominations we’ve received are of substantial quality and will not go unrecognised, therefore we will still be going ahead with scoring and additional nominations may be considered during this time.

We are sorry for any disappointment but hope you understand, we will be in touch with confirmed attendees shortly.

Take care and many thanks,
Sarah
Chief Executive Officer
