Staff Network

The Welsh Ambulance Service LGBT+ Staff Network was established in 2016 and aims to improve the working environment for LGBT+ employees and volunteers and contribute to improved experiences for LGBT+ patients and service users. 

The Network aims to promote equality, diversity and individuality through a range of internal promotional activity and through external involvement in key regional events, such as Pride Cymru.
