What does the National Rainbow Network do?

The National Rainbow Network plays a leading role in making NHS Finance a more inclusive place for colleagues who identify as LGBTQIA+.

The National Rainbow Network exists to raise awareness and support colleagues.

“I was unsure of joining this network as I have never really mixed with other LGBTQIA+ people, or ever got involved with the scene. I decided to join because I am passionate about diversity, inclusion and equality and felt I needed to support my identity group. The group was very welcoming and my nervousness about being a part of it disappeared very quickly. I felt that I was in a safe environment and at ease to get involved. I would highly recommend joining this group”.

Graham Miller, Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust
