Pride and the RSPCA

Celebrating Pride is part of our commitment to be an inclusive charity and to celebrate our LGBTQ+ community within the RSPCA as well as with our supporters and friends. We can create a better world for all, by treating every person and animal with kindness and respect all year round.

Why is the RSPCA supporting pride?

We’re dedicated to being a place where LGBTQ+ people can openly be themselves. Celebrating Pride and supporting our LGBTQ+ community is part of our commitment to being an inclusive charity and to celebrate our diversity. Pride events are important community celebrations that we're proud to be a part of and are just one of the ways we celebrate the community all-year round.

A message from our LGBTQ+ Network

Our LGBTQ+ Network brings together colleagues with a shared interest in topics relevant to LGBTQ+ communities and individuals; either as a member of these communities or as an ally or supporter.

Pride is a significant event in the history of the LGBTQ+ community. Being inclusive for all is synonymous with the RSPCA brand of here for every kind, and that means not just animals but all of our people.

What is the RSPCA doing to support our LGBTQ+ communities?

In common with our commitment to other communities, we've developed a forum that colleagues inform us provides psychological safety for our LGBTQ+ colleagues and supporters. Understanding the barriers to why people may not engage with us is key, so we've partnered with LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall.

We're also working on an education and prevention programme which focuses on the needs of the LGBTQ+ community and communicates the evident link between humans and animals.
