The Rainbow Alliance is a group of representatives from different agencies who are all about raising awareness and improving responses for LGBT+ people living and working across Co Durham and Darlington. We continue to highlight and support improvement for victims of same sex domestic and/or sexual violence, hate crime and bullying through education and training. We have a Rainbow Alliance Award for agencies who are assessed as fully committed to LGBT+ equality and inclusion.
