The network will work toward:

• Strengthened advice, information and advocacy services that help lesbian, gay and bisexual people. Across Wales, LGB people will have easier access to accurate and up to date information, advocacy and advice and will better understand and exercise their rights, and responsibilities, empowering them to make informed choices.

• Public service providers will put the needs of LGB service users at the heart of service delivery.  The needs of LGB people will be better understood and met in the provision and planning of public services and they will be treated more fairly across the public domain in Wales.

• There will be a more robust Welsh evidence base on matters relating to sexual orientation, plugging the current gap and providing a clearer direction for policy makers and providers of public services.

• Improved confidence and trust in the criminal justice system amongst Welsh LGB people, and increased reporting of hate crime and referrals to Victim Support.

• More inclusive learning environments, proactive challenge of homophobia and celebration of different families and role models in education.  Young LGB people will be able to meet their full potential unhindered by their sexual orientation.

• More visible Welsh LGB role models.  They will inspire people throughout the country, help change attitudes, and participate more in public appointments.
