Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake attended the launch of the new Sutton LGBTQ+ Forum last week to give his support for the organisation as LGBT History Month drew to a close.
Tom was joined by various VIPs at the forum launch, including Sutton Deputy Mayor Chris Williams. Attendees discussed the valuable local services provided for Sutton residents such as HIV testing at Wallington Library.
The organisation provides or publicises many services and support groups for the LGBTQ+ community in Carshalton and Wallington by working with schools, companies and the Council to provide support, prevent discrimination and promote equality across the board.
Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake said:
"Sutton LGBTQ+ helps to ensure that Carshalton and Wallington is a welcoming environment for all residents, whatever their sexuality. With the help of the many services provided locally, we can challenge discrimination, raise awareness and promote equality."
