LGBT History Month

March 2021 is LGBT History Month, so we’d like to remind people of the PiPP recognition scheme, which is a way of recognising the work of those advancing LGBTI+ inclusion and/or PiPP aims within HMPPS. Attached details of the recognition scheme, along with this years role models & allies pack profiling LGBTI+ role models & allies in service.

 

HMPPS is hoping to achieve the recruitment of local leads at every establishment across the country. Anyone can apply to be a PiPP local lead including allies, as long as someone is passionate about LGBTI+ equality there’s no barriers.
