RMT Signs Up To 'CLASP' LGBT Community Scheme

RMT General Secretary Bob Crow has signed up the RMT to a local community safety scheme, CLASP, to show that we are LGBT friendly.

The RMT Head Office in Camden now has a sticker on display in the window to demonstrate that the building is a 'safe place' for LGBT people should they need a place of refuge whilst near to the building.

The 'Camden LGBT Advice And Safety Project' or CLASP say "For the first time in the UK, gay men, lesbians, bisexual and trans people will know where to turn if they are in trouble on the streets – at least in the borough of Camden. Similar to the successful ‘safe havens scheme’ CLASP (Camden LGBT Advice and Safety Project) has already signed up over 100 organisations who have pledged to carry a sticker in their window and provide a point of safety for people if they are abused or attacked on the streets of Camden."

Over 100 organisations in the area have joined the scheme.
