On Monday 2 July, we attended the first North Lincs Pride
event, organised by North Lincolnshire Council.
At the event, the Mayor of North Lincolnshire, Councillor
John Briggs raised the LGBT flag outside the Civic Centre
in Scunthorpe, and guests heard from speakers including
William McCullion, Member of Youth Parliament for
Organisations including us, British Steel and North Lincs
Council then signed a pledge, promising to celebrate
diversity and show a commitment to ending discrimination.

In July 2018, we signed the Armed Forces
Covenant to recognise the value serving
personnel, veterans and military families
bring to local communities.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise
to ensure that those who serve or who
have served in the armed forces, and
their families, are treated fairly. So far,
over 1,500 organisations have signed it.
By signing the obligation, we've pledged to
uphold key principles, which include:
• Seeking to support our employees who
choose to be members of the Reserve
forces, including by accommodating their
training and deployment where possible
• Signposting veterans that live in an Ongo
Homes property to specialised support
services should they need them
