[Social] To engage in social activities to develop friendships and widen the outreach of the LGBT* community in the Students’ Union and further afield.
[Education] To organise and implement information sessions during the year through activities or other
campaigns to increase awareness of LGBT* issues.
[Signposting] To provide external support for those members who need it, including aiding individuals in
accessing help and advice from professional bodies and charities.
[Inclusion] Making members feel welcome and included in the Institute.
[Tolerance] Promote tolerance, acceptance and understanding of all sexualities and gender identities with
a view to ending the discrimination faced by, and faced within, the LGBT* community.
[Enrichment] To enhance the ‘student experience’ for LGBT* students.
