Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has again been ranked in Stonewall’s list of lesbian-, gay- and bisexual-friendly employers.

The Trust has improved a massive 145 places on the index, to 123rd out of 397.

It has participated in the workplace equality index for the past five years.

To be accepted by Stonewall, the Trust had to demonstrate workplace culture and activity, covering policy, practice and service user engagement.

Sophie Ford, Trust equality and diversity lead, said: “We have been extremely supportive of the equality agenda as a whole. I hope our staff and service users are starting to see the real difference.”
