Developing a Sexual Orientation Strategy - Consultation document and Questionnaire

Consultation opened on 13 March 2014. Closing date 06 June 2014.


This document is intended to initiate public consultation on the development of the Sexual Orientation Strategy. Our aim is that the strategy will address the issues that directly and adversely affect the life chances of LGB people. Our intention is that it will bring focus and priority to identifying and addressing the issues and disadvantages that undermine equality of opportunity for people who are LGB and which adversely affect their everyday lives.


Consultation description

We believe that this will contribute to the Together: Building a United Community Strategy objective of a more united and shared society, a society at ease with its diversity.

The Sexual Orientation Strategy and Action Plan will provide an overarching policy framework within which departments, their agencies and other relevant statutory authorities can develop actions that promote equality of opportunity for LGB people across government’s major policy areas, tackle the specific inequalities they face and counter prejudice, intolerance and hatred.
