Jacqui Jobson, Director of our Advocacy Centre North project, has produced a new research report for the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust. The report focuses on LGBTQ mental health inequalities and takes inspiration from services in Australia and Canada to make recommendations here in the UK. The publication of this report is timely because the UK Government has recently published an LGBT Action Plan that echos many of the themes outlined in Jacqui's report. It's a relevant and useful resource for the voluntary and community sector, as well as the public sector and specialist advocacy services.

The report stresses that the voluntary and community sector should play a key role in partnering with LGBTQ people to support, organise and network. As a sector, we have always been best placed to work with seldom heard communities and minority groups. We will share some of these key recommendations from the report soon. In the meantime, you can download a copy of the report here:
