Do you wear a rainbow lanyard?

As an inclusive organisation we will provide a respectful listening ear for anyone who needs support with LGBT+ concerns. Wearing a rainbow lanyard signals that you will be ready to offer support when requested. You are not expected to have all the answers but you are expected to listen and signpost or involve others who can help. We’ll soon begin to see these posters going up to explain this further. If you wear a rainbow lanyard please make yourself familiar with what’s expected – you can find all the details on the LGBT+ area on our staff intranet, under Equality and Diversity. Please contact: dchst.lgbt@nhs.net if you have any questions or want to find out more about the LGBT+ network, allies welcome.
