Access to Information Team,

Dear Sir / Madam,
Apologies for the delay in getting the information requested to you, unfortunately the member of staff who dealt with stonewall left NRW last year and it's providing difficult to find some of the information requested, I have found some of the evidence but not the actual application so I am just going through them and will be in touch shortly.

Dear Nerys,

Thank you very much for this response.

I note you are in the process of carrying out an EDI project 2021, looking at all your processes and procedures. Please consider the reputational and legal risks of Stonewall membership. See more here https://legalfeminist.org.uk/2021/02/01/...

Yours sincerely,

Ermine Amies
