    LGBT Charter Award

    Edinburgh Women’s Aid is working towards achieving its LGBT Charter award in 2016. We recognise the importance of demonstrating our commitment to LGBT people in Edinburgh. By working through the Charter’s programme we aim to remove barriers to LGBT people resulting in more diverse and inclusive services for LGBT people.
