Supporting Pride at CHFT

We've been flying the flag over HRI showing our Trust's support for Pride.

We also have a new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Nikki Hosty, who explains more about our endeavours to create a Trust which is fair and equal for all.

We flew the LGBTQ+ flag over HRI (there's no flag-pole at CRH) and we hosted our HRI Pride stall where we met some wonderful people and had some great quality conversations with patients and colleagues.

Nikki says: "The purpose of the stall was to promote our support for the LGBTQ+ community and Huddersfield Pride in June at the Lawrence Batley Theatre.

"The purpose of Pride worldwide is to take a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards the LGBT community and promote self affirmation, dignity and equal rights. It's about celebrating sexual diversity and gender variance.  When we celebrate Pride we celebrate our identity and our authentic self!

"We will continue celebrating Pride by flying the flag in support of Happy Valley Pride (July) and Halifax Pride (August) and also hosting our Pride stall in reception. CHFT will also have a presence at these Prides."
