March 8th, 2017 – London
The National LGB&T Partnership is committed to reducing health inequalities and challenging homophobia, biphobia and transphobia within public services. We combine the expertise and knowledge of twelve LGB&T organisations from across England but are keen to ensure everything we produce has much further reach.
To help achieve this, we are organising a special 2-part seminar style event which will be of interest to both LGB&T organisations in England and those engaged in LGB&T policy development or commissioning within the health and care sectors. It will be an opportunity to explore the diverse range of LGB&T specific resources the National LGB&T Partnership have produced to inform policy and practice development, in the context of our six broad priorities:
- Data Monitoring
- Changing Attitudes
- Access To Services
- Collaboration and Community Engagement
- Co-Production and Co-Delivery
- Raising LGB&T Voices
The day will be split into two parts in order to explore how the health and care system can benefit from the National LGB&T Partnership’s resources in the morning, followed by sessions for LGB&T organisations in the afternoon focussed on making use of these resources when engaging with the various parts of the health and care sector.
Morning seminar (11 – 1pm): For policy developers, commissioners and senior staff working within the health and care sectors
The National LGB&T Partnership will present our key resources from the last couple of years, informing health sector stakeholders on how the system can benefit from their information and identifying ways to embed them into their work.
Networking Lunch (1 – 2pm)
An opportunity for those in the health and care sector to meet and network with a range of LGB&T organisations.
Afternoon seminar (2 – 4pm): For LGB&T voluntary and community organisations
This is an opportunity to find out more about the resources the National LGB&T Partnership have produced and how they can help a diverse range of LGB&T organisations. Many of the resources centre on embedding LGB&T issues into national policy and members of the Partnership will be on hand to give their top tips and share with attendees how they have already been used by a range of bodies.
The National LGB&T Partnership has a small number of travel bursaries on offer to support LGB&T organisations attending so please get in touch via email if you would like to discuss this.
