Staff Network

Pride in SECAmb, was launched ahead of Brighton and Hove Pride in 2008.

The network was established with the aim of helping to create a working environment and policy framework for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) staff which is open, supportive and promotes equality of opportunity. The network promotes an allies culture and is open to all our staff and volunteers. Members are consulted in development of policies and procedures, involved in the appointment of our Board members, consultations and invited to take part in continuous professional development events.

Pride in SECAmb has been had an annual presence at Brighton and Hove Pride Parade since 2008, and has been part of Trans Pride since 2015, promoting SECAmb as an inclusive employer and service provider.
