Costs of membership of Stonewall

Anthony Griffin made this Freedom of Information request to Cheshire Constabulary

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cheshire Constabulary,

I would like to know the amount of public funds that is being spent on the force being a member of the organisation known as Stonewall. I would like to have a full breakdown on costs of the different aspects of membership. For example how much is being spent on training, how much is being spent attending conferences and events.

I would also like to know how the decision was made to chose the services of this organisation over other service providers, for example was there a procurement process?

I would like to know how value for money is being established and are there any reports available on how this is being quantified.

Yours faithfully,
Anthony Griffin
