LGB Community Leaders – The Voice of our Communities
Publish Date: 14/05/2013
Whether we only need access to these services when we are sick or need support, or if we depend on regular health services to improve the quality of our lives and sometimes even save our lives, we can and should feel able to make a real difference to the way our health services are run.
This is especially important if we think we haven’t been listened to, our needs as lesbian, gay and bisexual people haven’t been taken into consideration in the past, or our voices are not currently being heard.
That’s why The Lesbian & Gay Foundation has been funded for the next three years by The Department of Health to empower and support at least 40 LGB Community Leaders across Greater Manchester.
These Community Leaders will work on behalf of our community to help to ensure that health and social care services are designed and commissioned around the real needs of LGB people. This new project is a fantastic opportunity for lesbian, gay and bisexual people from all parts of Greater Manchester to make sure an authentic LGB voice is heard to ensure that service providers have the information they need to better cater for the needs of LGB people.
