Team of the Year 2016 highly commended - Proud@NEAS

In late 2014 the North East ambulance Service had no lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff network and were ranked 224th in Stonewall top 100 employers Workplace Equality Index rankings.
small number of staff came together to set up a staff network for LGBT staff, which was later named Proud@NEAS.
The network was launched in early 2015 to assist in the creation of a more cohesive and visible LGBT community within NEAS and North East region, to support and contribute to NEAS’ equality agenda in relation to employment and service delivery and to provide confidential support and information for any member of staff regarding LGBTQ matters.
The group has been heavily involved in influencing policy, decision making and change across the Trust. It has a good membership base and offers a range of different opportunities to get involved and as a result there has been a positive cultural change, a reduction in dignity at work issues, greater internal and external visibility and awareness, improved information and knowledge and more support for managers and colleagues.
