Dear NATS Public Enquiries,

Thank you Robin for your response, in which you state "NATS is a Stonewall Diversity Champion and the organisation has provided guidance on our diversity work".

Could you kindly confirm which (financial) years NATS subscribed to membership of the 'Diversity Champions' scheme, and also whether any other payments have been made to Stonewall since 2015?

I'm looking at all/any payments including, but not limited to;
- Grant funding
- Membership to any other Stonewall scheme (‘Top 100 Employers’, ‘Children and Young People Champions’, ‘School Champions’, ‘Equality Index’, ‘LGBT Leadership Programme’, ‘LGBT Role Model Programme’, ‘Ally/Trans Ally Programmes’, ‘Proud Employers’, ‘Train the Trainer’, or any other Stonewall scheme or Programme etc)
- Donations
- Events/Conferences (where, for example, your organisation purchased tickets to attend or entered raffles or auctions organised by Stonewall). Please name any events/conferences that your organisation attended and dates attended)
- Consultancy or other specialised advice services
- Any money paid to Stonewall for Advertising, such as Job Adverts etc
- Any ‘other spend’, such as on ‘rainbow laces’ or ‘rainbow lanyards’ etc

In summary, I’d appreciate receiving as complete a break-down as possible of all and any money paid to Stonewall by NATS over the periods requested.

Many thanks again in anticipation.
Yours sincerely,

Dave Bratt - Voice for Justice UK
