Welcome to Bradford Equity Partnership

Equity Partnership is a charity set up and delivered by LGBT people in Bradford and the surrounding areas.


Equity Partnership delivers training to a wide range of organisations to give them the knowledge and tools to combat homophobia and transphobia and to help them create LGBT friendly workplaces and services.

Training & Awareness


We support LGBT groups and individuals to have a say in the decisions taken by agencies, which affect our lives, and work in partnership with other voluntary and statutory agencies, such as Bradford Council and Bradford Hate Crime Alliance.

Our Influence

The Equity Centre

Our community centre provides a safe and relaxed space for all LGBT people to socialise and learn. It is also available for hire, being a fully-equipped training resource and a venue for events right in the centre of Bradford.

The Centre


Equity Partnership undertakes research to identify the needs and opinions of local LGBT people. This research is used to influence and educate agencies so that they are able to be more inclusive.

Last night Trans Day of Remembrance was held in Bradford, a somber event to remember all who have been killed by transphobic violence in 2018.

Each candle in this picture represents each person on this years list, far more than there should ever be lit. The candle in the center represents all who committed suicide because of the pressure transphobia put on them.

The event last night was a stunning display of support for the trans community, shown by both the actions and attendance to the service.

Thank you to all who attended last night and a huge thank you to Councillor Richard DunbarTrans Mission and Bradford Council for all your parts in making this poignant event happen.
