NALC celebrates Pride month
This month, the National Association of Local Councils (NALC) is celebrating Pride, a month dedicated to celebrating the LGBT+ community.
During Pride month, it is also important to acknowledge and raise awareness of the issues that continue to affect LGBT+ people across the country and globally.
NALC commends the great work that LGBT+ councillors do every day, as well as the efforts that local (town and parish) councils across England are making to ensure their communities are more welcoming and inclusive for all their residents. NALC also recognises that there is more to do and that all councils need to play a role in this.
NALC is committed to creating a more diverse local council sector, with its Make A Change campaign aiming to get more LGBT+ people - and individuals from all backgrounds and experiences - to become councillors. NALC’s LGBT+ network was set up to provide a space for LGBT+ people in the local council sector to connect, support one another, and share good practices.
