Good Afternoon

Please see below the information you have asked for:
____

The Guidance was withdrawn on 21st March 2018 and immediately replaced by
the LGBT Youth Guidance
The Equality Impact assessment  was carried out by NHS  for the Forth
Valley Guidance(see attached).

The LGBT Youth  Guidance signposted to schools is  guidance and not
reference in a wider policy or procedure.

The decision to withdraw was a Forth Valley decision in light of the LGBT
Guidance being more comprehensive and  endorsed.  The LGBT Youth guidance
was  funded by the Scottish Government’s Equality Unit and following
rigorous consultation, 31 organisations and 16 local authorities endorsed
this publication, including the Children’s and Young People’s Commissioner
for Scotland and key organisations working with children and young people.

Dear Clackmannanshire Council,

Thank you for your reply on 13/4/18, but the response does not clearly address my previous requests

1/ Can you clarify if there is any policy or procedures as to the use of the new LGBT guidance.

The EQIA you attached to your previous response is for the old guidance that has since been replaced.
2/ Can you clarify if Clackmannanshire Council has carried out any Impact Assessments in its decision to implement the new LGBT guidance.

Yours faithfully,

J Stewart

Dear Clackmannanshire Council,

Thank you for your response today (16/4/18).

I would like to state that I was asking for clarification of the previous response that I was given and not a review of my request. The response was not clear in the way it adressed my points.

I would appreciate if you could you provide further clarity and expand on your previous responses?

Yours faithfully,

J Stewart
