Who we are

Public Health England have received feedback from local networks on how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted on LGBTQ + communities and they are producing a webinar focussing on these issues.


During the Covid19 pandemic we received feedback from our local networks around some of the unique challenges facing LGBTQ+ communities. We therefore wanted to develop a series of webinars (running in June 2021) focusing on issues for people from LGBTQ+ communities across the life course, including one webinar on primary prevention.

The webinar will provide an opportunity to showcase local approaches and bridge practical interventions, best practice and policy improvements to foster new ways of working and address and improve LGBTQ+ health inequalities across the region.

We are really keen to gain feedback from local partners to ensure that our webinar series is far reaching and addresses the core and current themes that this community face. We are also looking for speakers to share their work on this agenda and chairs to run some of the webinar sessions.

If you are involved in any projects or know of any local organisations or initiatives working with LGBTQ+ communities that could be showcased in the webinar or if you would like to be involved in chairing a session then please do get in touch with Nikki Gambles:
