Turning policy into practice

LGBT+ Commission

Chaired by former Women and Equalities Select Committee Member and MP, Ben Howlett alongside a civil society committee chaired by Chief Executive of Just Like Us (a charity for LGBT+ youth) Dom Arnall and representatives of local and regional government, the Commission aims to provide research, policy recommendations and an implementation plan to leading decision makers across the diversity and inclusion ecosystem. Taking a bottom up approach, the Commission will take data, insights and recommendations from civil society, business, and local and regional government to the national level.

By highlighting how examples of best practice have changed peoples lives, the Commission aims to provide an implementation plan for changes within four key areas of policy: health inequalities, housing and homelessness, hate crime and violence, and employment.
