How Stonewall Cymru works

Stonewall Cymru aims to achieve legal equality and social justice for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Wales.

We aim to provide an all Wales organisation that will work individually and in partnership with agencies, organisations, statutory bodies and individuals inside and outside the LGB sector to:

Promote the human rights and equal treatment of LGB people;
Challenge discrimination against LGB people;
Articulate the needs and interests of LGB people and represent these to the National Assembly for Wales and other appropriate bodies;
Consolidate and develop the infrastructure with LGB communities across Wales to enable them to contribute to and have representation in policy developments.

We do this in a wide variety of ways including policy development, consultation and liaison with relevant groups and organisations, provision of information and education (attitudinal and institutional), lobbying, community development, capacity building as well as good practice design and advice.

We will strive to ensure our work reflects the diversity of the LGB population living in Wales. We are committed to cross-Wales representation; gender and language parity, minority and marginalised communities representation, cross-party political representation, and representation from trade unions.

Stonewall Cymru currently employs 8 staff based in Cardiff.
