Arcus Forum

By the community, for the community. Hosted by dedicated professionals but also open to the public LGBT+ community too!

Arcus forum is a regular meeting made up of professionals who are members of and/or represent the LGBT+ community,

We think it is very important for LGBT+ people to have a voice within the community and this is one of the ways that we aim to achieve this.  We can, in collaboration discuss and debate current issues, with a view to achieving the best outcomes.  We cover topics including hate crime, reporting and recording, as well as how LGBT+ feel about services locally, and indeed any other relevant and current issue.

By meeting regularly we hope to meet the aim of building community resilience and opening up conversations with local services and amenities to address inequalities and problems faced by the LGBT+ Community in and around Darlington.

We also have open meetings several times a year where we invite everyone from the LGBT+ community!

If you would like to join the forum and come along to the meetings, please register your interest by emailing
