NFRS shows visible support for LGBT communities


Rainbow flags will be flying around Nottinghamshire at NFRS work locations from today (Friday 14 May) until Friday 21 May.

This is part of the Service’s actions for International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) which takes place on Monday 17 May.

The Service has a strong commitment to LGBT+ equality, is a sponsor of the local youth group 'Outburst', supports the rainbow laces campaign, actively promotes its Service’s to Nottinghamshire’s LGBT community and takes action to maintain an inclusive work environment for everyone. 

Chief Fire Officer John Buckley, said: "The occasion enables us to reflect on the progress made in securing equality for people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and those with associated identities. It also raises awareness of the impact Hombophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia can have both in wider society and in the workplace.” 

“As part of the Service’s commitment to inclusion we are proud to provide visible support for LGBT+ communities again in 2021"

As a member of Stonewall, the Service will be measuring its achievements against other organisations through the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index later this year.
