A document to help inform the development of the Sexual Orientation Strategy has been launched today for public consultation.

The proposed strategic objectives of the strategy are:

  • To promote an environment free from harassment and bullying and to tackle homophobia in all forms including violence and abuse.
  • To promote equality of opportunity.

The consultation document is available on the Office of the First Minister and deputy First Minister Website at http://www.ofmdfmni.gov.uk/sexual-orientation.

We are keen to hear your views on the proposals.  A consultation questionnaire is available to complete at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Sex_Orient_Cons_survey.  If required, the questionnaire can be completed via telephone by calling the number below.
