We love networking and we are also serious about our approach in teaming up with LGBT+ inclusive clubs, charities and business to help promote individuality and our mutual aims on a basis that works for both of us.
This may be as simple as helping each other with promotional activities, supporting each others events, sharing recourses and facilities, providing volunteers or networking with each others members, clients and customers.
This does in no way need to result in merging together or diminishing the identity and independents of our separate organisations, so there really isn't anything to lose and instead there's only new possibilities to achieve greater things by being pro-active in which to build and grow!
Interested then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 07562 269 558.
