The aim of LBT Women’s Health Week is to raise awareness about the health inequalities which affect women in LGBTQ+ communities, to make it easier for service providers to empower service users and for communities to support LGBTQ+ women. The week is also an opportunity to celebrate, highlight and learn from the work of groups and services which provide dedicated support to LGBTQ+ women.
The main focus of LBT Women’s Health Week 2020 is visibility. The National LGB&T Partnership are organising, leading and supporting a number of events and activities across the country including information sharing, networking, and health service provision. They are also providing you with facts and information to help explain why LGBTQ Women’s Health needs to be made a priority, and how to make changes. They will be launching some additional new resources during the week, and updating the website as the week goes on to link to what’s happening in the media to mark the week.
For information on how to support the week, please view these slides. If you have any questions, or want to offer any kind of support or let The Partnership know what you’re doing to mark LBT Women’s Health Week 2020, please email Harri: [email protected]
