RYA Scotland Survey on LGBT inclusion in boating

RYA Scotland Survey on LGBT inclusion in boating © RYA Scotland

We are really proud of what the Scottish boating community have achieved so far in supporting and promoting the LGBT+ community at all levels but we always want to be sure we are doing the best we can.

RYA Scotland is in the final stages of completing the LGBT Youth Scotland Foundations Charter and is looking for your views around LGBT+ Inclusion.

We want to demonstrate that the LGBT+ community is welcome throughout the boating community and have set up a short survey to learn more about what people think we do well or not so well around LGBT+ inclusion.

We would be really grateful if you would share our survey with your networks and take a little time to give us your views:

The survey closes next Friday the 16th of August.
