Phobic crime project
Monday 16 February. We are delighted to be able to announce today that Intercom is one of the lead agencies in a new national LGBT project funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. The new project is aimed at improving LGB and Trans people's access to help against homophobic, transphobic and biphobic crime, and making it easier for us all to report phobic crime when we meet it.
The lead agency is the national LGBT Consortium. The other agencies on the National Framework Group, with the Consortium and Intercom, are GALOP and Metro in London, the Manchester Lesbian and Gay Foundation, Yorkshire MESMAC, Unity Group Wales, Leicester LGBT Centre, Stonewall Housing, Regard, Trans MediaWatch, and Bi UK. We look forward to working with them all. We send our special congratulations and thanks to Paul at the Consortium and Nik at Galop for their immensely hard work setting up this national partnership and developing the project proposal last year.
Andy will be heading this project up for Intercom, working closely with Michael, and we will be working closely with our local LGBT partners in the South West.
It's a new project, so... watch this space!
