The ACEVO Commission on Charity Governance would like to invite you to participate in its work through an online survey and/or a series of consultation events to be held around the country in May 2013.
The Commission was established to support improved governance within the charity sector. It is focusing on the practical issues that arise in charity governance, and aims to put forward pragmatic recommendations aimed at helping charities improve their governance in order to deliver their aims more effectively.
The survey and consultation events will help the Commission to explore and understand the governance-related issues faced by charities today, and provide an opportunity to influence the work of the Commission and thinking on governance within the sector as a whole.
Both the survey and consultation events are open to all; in addition, we are interested in hearing from Chairs, Trustees and Senior Managers, so please feel free to pass this information to any colleagues who might be interested.
The survey can be taken here.
Thomas Stocks is a postgraduate student at the University of Sheffield currently researching LGBT rights in the United Kingdom. I have designed an onlinesurvey based on the Yogyakarta Principles that aims to understand who, within the LGBT community, is most at risk from human rights abuses in the United Kingdom, and what sort of abuses occur the most frequently. Iam particularly interested in exploring the differences in the experience, both in frequency, severity, and type of rights abuse, between transgender people and the rest of the LGBT community.
The survey is completely anonymous, and responses will be treated confidentially, and should not take more than 15 minutesto complete.

The aim of the survey is to research the reasons why members of the Trans community historically do not report most Hate crime and Hate incidents.
A hate crime is any criminal offence that is motivated by hostility or prejudice based upon the victim &aposs: disability, race, religion or belief sexual orientation transgender identity.
Hate crime can take many forms including:physical attacks such as physical assault, damage to property, offensive graffiti and arson threat of attack including offensive letters, abusive or obscene telephone calls, groups hanging around to intimidate, and unfounded, malicious complaints verbal abuse, insults or harassment – taunting, offensive leaflets and posters, abusive gestures, dumping of rubbish outside homes or through letterboxes, and bullying at school or in the workplace.
Results will be used to help the Police understand which issues should be addressed and ultimately if any GMP policies or practices etc need amending or reforming, in order to increase the confidence of Trans residents and Trans visitors to Manchester.

This survey builds on the Twitter hashtag #TransDocFail, where hundreds of allegations of discrimination and/or abuse were made by trans people about different aspects of medical care.
This survey should be completed by those who have allegations against any part of the health system in Great Britain and Northern Ireland – where you believe the incident happened only because you were trans or intersex. If the incident occured outside the United Kingdom, then please do not complete this survey.
In an EU-wide survey by Transgender Europe, trans passengers reported problems with their safety, security and dignity because of the attitudes and actions of staff and fellow passengers (see “Social inclusion through sustainable transport.”).
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) together with the police, the Crown Prosecution Service, the council and transport operators are looking at this problem in order to try and make trans people feel safe and confident about using public transport.
The Trans Resource & Empowerment Centre (TREC) wants to be able to present evidence on what it’s really like for trans people using public transport and is trying to gather reports of actual experiences, good and bad.
London is a vibrant city for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to live in. There are more lesbians, gay men, bisexual people and trans people in London than any other city in the UK. Despite this, data suggests that about two-thirds of us ‘sometimes feel lonely’. This may be because living in a city can sometimes make us feel a bit isolated or it could be that we need more ways of socialising outside of bars and clubs. GMFA want to find out what interests you have so that we they can learn what social activities appeal to the London LGBT community so that they can help set up groups of people with common interests.
