ICTU Tender

  1. 1. 1 BeLonG To Youth Services and the Irish Congress of Trade Unions Tender Brief Production of Campaign Video Ad Stand Up at Work Awareness Campaign Against Homophobic & Transphobic Bullying in the Workplace May 2014 1. Project Partners: BeLonG To: BeLonG To is the national organisation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) young people, aged 14 to 23. BeLonG To works with LGBT young people in Ireland by providing them with a safe space in which they can meet like-minded friends and see that their identities and selves are valuable and important. BeLonG To also provides an advocacy and campaigning voice so that society respects LGBT young people as full and valued members. Our vision is for an Ireland where LGBT young people are empowered to embrace their development and growth confidently and to participate as agents of positive social change. For more information see: www.belongto.org ICTU: The Irish Congress of Trade Unions is the largest civil society organisation on the island of Ireland, representing and campaigning on behalf of some 797,399 working people. Women now make up 51% of the membership. There are currently 55 unions affiliated to Congress, north and south of the border. Congress seeks to achieve a just society – one which recognises the rights of all workers and citizens to enjoy the prosperity and fulfilment which leads to a good quality of life. Quality of life embraces not just material wellbeing, but freedom of choice to engage in the arts, culture and all aspects of civic life. This vision applies in the context of Ireland, Europe and the wider world and challenges the existing economic order. Congress strives to achieve economic development, social cohesion and justice by upholding the values of solidarity, fairness and equality.
