Dorset Childrens Foundations joins AfC initiative

The LGB&T Dorset Equality Network on behalf of the LGB&T community is delighted that Dorset Children’s Foundation ( has at our invitation joined the Ask for Clive initiative.

The welcome I received from Patsy and the DCF team yesterday at their main shop in Boscombe to deliver training for AfC delivery was a fantastic experience. 

Learning about this exceptional charity’s approach to welcome and inclusion for LGB&T community members was inspiring, and so different to those organisations and businesses that just go through the ‘tick box’ motions on LGB&T and broader diverse communities safety and inclusion needs. Well done DCF!!
