LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project – surveys for professionals and people with lived experience

/, Learning Disability, Mental Health/LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project – surveys for professionals and people with lived experience

The LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project, run by Advonet, CHANGE and Yorkshire MESMAC, have two surveys out.

  • One is for LGBTQ+ people in Leeds who are also either autistic, have a learning disability or mental health difficulties.
  • The other is for health and social care professionals in the city who work with people in those groups.

Both surveys aim to ask for people’s views on accessing healthcare services as LGBTQ+ people from those communities, the barriers faced and what can be done to remove them. The responses will be used to form a picture of what would make it easier for them to access healthcare in future.

The survey for LGBTQ+ people who are autistic, have a learning disability or mental health difficulties is at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/lgbtqprojectsurvey.

You can find the survey for health and social care professionals here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/lgbtqinclusionsurvey1.

If you would like more information about the survey or the project as a whole, please call the Advonet office on 0113 244 0606 and ask for Claire Nixson or email lgbtinclusion@advonet.org.uk.
