Bernie Graham, who leads our Mental Health programme within BuildForce advised “Fighting With Pride is a trusted and respected LGBT+ military charity that has lived experience and knowledge to support. Their Pride in Veterans Standard (PiVS) programme supports entities like us, that wishes to visibly demonstrate our commitment to providing inclusive and welcoming support to LGBT+ Veterans serving personnel and their families. Further to the Lord Etherton report, we all need to do more. I am delighted to be an ambassador for all those veteran LGBT+ and would encourage them to use BuildForce, as we are a safe and respected space to support them pursue rewarding careers in construction.”
