Early Intervention Foundation
What Works LGBTQ+
At the Early Intervention Foundation (EIF) we are renewing our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) to ensure that this is at the heart of all our work. This Autumn we are launching a new EDI strategy through to 2027 that ensures we are actively considering the needs of under-represented or minority groups in our organisational practices, culture and project work, including LGBTQ+ people. We are setting ambitious targets for the life of the strategy that actively target increased participation of LGBTQ+ individuals in our recruitment and retention of staff. In our project work we are building in a consideration of protected characteristics by requiring all work to generate an Equality Impact Assessment (EIA) and to actively consider recommendations for groups that include LGBTQ+ people. For example, in our work on Reducing Parental Conflict (RPC), we are consulting local areas to better understand if we can support them in their work with LBGTQ+ people. We are excited to implement our new EDI strategy and do more work which serves the LGBTQ+ community.
