Equalities Partnership seek views on safety, equality and inclusivity in region

A survey has been launched to find out what people think should be done to help Dumfries and Galloway become a safer, more equal and inclusive place.

The survey has been created by Dumfries and Galloway Equalities Partnership.

It was established in July 2017 by four local organisations: DG Voice, Dumfries and Galloway Multicultural Association, Dumfries and Galloway LGBT Plus and LGBT Youth Scotland.

The Partnership enables these organisations to work together towards a shared vision of Dumfries and Galloway as a region where diversity is respected, celebrated and everyone feels safe and included.
