for stronger lgbt+ communities
LGBT HERO is the national health and wellbeing charity supporting over 100,000 LGBTQ+ people a month by providing trusted information, advice and various types of support including one-to-one, group and peer-support on issues such as sexual health, mental health, suicide prevention, living with HIV, gender and sexuality, coming out, alcohol and drugs, hate crime and discrimination.
LGBT HERO aims to improve the health, enhance the wellbeing and champion the rights of LGBTQ+ people. LGBT HERO provides LGBTQ+ people with accurate and credible information so they can build skills that enable them to make informed choices about their health and wellbeing. We encourage LGBTQ+ people to create social change in our communities by providing a platform where they are heard and valued.
LGBT HERO wants to see a world where LGBTQ+ people have the same opportunities in life as all other people, and are not disadvantaged by health or social inequalities because of their sexuality or identity.
LGBT HERO is an organisation informed by the communities it serves. We use volunteers from those communities to guide our work and inform our campaigns. People from LGBTQ+ communities write for us, advise us on the direction of campaigns, and feature in all of our published material.
