Disabled LGBT Members Caucus Development

Back to all Motions

2015 National LGBT Conference
18 September 2015

Conference believes that the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) self organised group is an exemplar of fair representation when it comes to structure and reserved seats for disabled LGBT members on national and regional LGBT committees, while recognising that still in 2015 disabled members face barriers to participation in all aspects of society.

Conference, however, notes that despite this, regional LGBT groups report low attendance from members who may identify with one of the caucus groups and caucus development at regional level appears sporadic.

Conference calls on the National LGBT Committee, working with the respective national caucuses within our self-organised group, to:

1. Produce guidance on effective caucus development at regional level;

2. Publicise good practice where there has been successful work carried out at regional level to develop caucuses.
