Encompass Network is involved in setting up and coordinating a number of local initiatives to help strengthen and celebrate the local LGBTQ+ community.
Every year we coordinate activities for LGBTQ+ History Month here in Cambridge, working with a number of partners from local voluntary, statutory and business sectors. We always aim to offer a range of activities to suit the needs of a diverse group of people.

Other campaigns include our local funding initiative, the LGBTQ+ ComPot (Community Pot) – a small fund which local LGBTQ+ people can apply too to help put on events for the community – and the Safer Spaces campaign – helping us to celebrate diversity within the community through creating safe spaces for LGBTQ+ people.
Both of these initiatives have come about as a result of the needs assessment we undertook which highlighted the need for increased activities and spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. Find out more about the needs assessment here.
