LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project

The LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project run by Advonet, CHANGE and Yorkshire MESMAC are running two sets of self-advocacy workshops.

The first is for LGBTQ+ people with learning disabilities.

The second is for LGBTQ+ people who are autistic or have mental health difficulties.

Each group will have six sessions, one every week.

They aim to help you do two things:

  1. Learn skills to help you speak up about your rights.
  2. Helps you to get involved in the health services you use.

The courses are free to attend.
