I have been involved in YAY since the beginning of the group and am the Treasurer and Safeguarding Lead at the moment.  I am the co-author of the award winning Schools Transgender Guidance.  I am a director of the National Gay Outdoor Club and an Independent Advisor to Devon & Cornwall Police.





I have been involved with LGBTQ Youth Cornwall since 2008, I am a Trustee and Secretary for the organisation. Together with my husband I have given advice to the Arch Deacon of Cornwall on matters in relation to faith and sexual orientation and I am a acredited member of the Institute of Equality and Diversity Practitioners. I provide training and LGBT awareness sessions in schools to young people as well as to people like doctors and other professionals as well in Equality and Diversity.  I am also a keen member of the Cornwall Gay Outdoor Club and a director of the national organisation, I also volunteer with the Intercom Trust. 







Proud supporter of YAY since the beginning, I'm really excited to be able to support this fantastic group.
