We are a “strategic intermediary” for the Scottish Government Equality Unit, and we receive funding from them for two projects:
The Equality Network project works towards the following outcomes:
- Equality and human rights for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBTI) people are increasingly delivered by the law, services, employment and society of Scotland.
- LGBTI people and groups are increasingly able to engage with each other and more widely, to reduce social isolation and improve equality and human rights in the law, services, employment and society in Scotland.
- There is increased understanding of, and expertise in, the situation and needs of LGBTI people in Scotland.
- The full diversity of LGBTI people in Scotland, including those with intersectional identities, increasingly benefit from equality and human rights work.
- The Scottish, UK and international equality and human rights sectors have increasing awareness of LGBTI equality and human rights expertise and good practice developing in Scotland.
The Scottish Transgender Alliance project works towards the following outcomes:
- Government policy makers, equality organisations, and other employers and service providers are more informed about how to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion through policy and good practice development.
- Transgender people are more informed, equipped and supported to engage with equality organisations, policy makers, service providers and employers on improving gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion.
- An increase in accurate and positive visibility of transgender people’s experiences in Scotland.
All our campaign work is paid for by donations and fundraising.
We also provide training and consultancy to a range of public, voluntary and private sector bodies in Scotland.
