We are incredibly proud to introduce our charity partner, George House Trust.
George House Trust, a non-profit organisation providing support services to people living with HIV, their carers, partners, and families, has been giving this vital support since the 1980s. The importance of their work along with the history of how, and why they were set up, is beautifully—and heartbreakingly—portrayed in Russell T Davis’ latest series, It’s A Sin.
It’s a partnership that’s particularly close to the heart of Kimpton Hotel and Restaurants, who have a broader commitment to affecting change and supporting the LGBTQ+ community, by partnering with organisations that make a difference.
And while we’re doing our bit here in Manchester, we’re also part of a bigger family: InterContinental Hotels & Resorts (IHG). This year, IHG earned a 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and has been recognised as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ equality for the seventh year in a row.
The Index is viewed as a significant endorsement of our company’s efforts to promote LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Joining forces with such an incredible organisation like George House Trust to help raise awareness for such a wonderful cause, means the world to us.
We are really looking forward to our continued work with George House Trust, and have some fantastic plans in the pipeline. Stay tuned!
