The Proud Trust provides the opportunity for companies to support and partner with a progressive, grassroots organisation that saves and enhances the lives of children and young LGBT+ people from across the North.
Why support The Proud Trust?
For every £1 invested in The Proud Trust we have a Social Impact Value of £4.
The LGBT+ population of Greater Manchester is 215,000, with 430,000 LGBT+ people in the North West – the need is great.
Our City of Manchester has been a pioneer for LGBT+ rights for many decades, including being the birth place of the UK’s Campaign for Homosexual Equality over 50 years ago.
An improved LGBT+ Centre will put a spotlight on Manchester as a diverse, progressive and equitable city – and will do the same for all of its corporate partners and supporters.
On average gay men and lesbians are well employed, earn significantly more than the UK average and have a higher disposable income than the national average.
Research shows that LGBT+ employees are 20-30% more productive if they are ‘out’ at work and feel supported.
How can companies get involved?
There are many ways companies can work in partnership with The Proud Trust, to promote diversity & inclusion, skills development, confidence building and health awareness, whilst saving and dramatically improving the lives of the local young LGBT+ population and their hidden struggles and disadvantages. Partnership is our “middle name”. We always work to ensure the objectives of our partners are met, as well as our own.
