The Diversity Trust have launched their latest (LGBT+) Lesbian Gay Bi Trans + health research report.

The report called ‘Evidence for Change’ is published in partnership with the local Healthwatch. The report brings together two years of work including a health needs assessment, evaluation of a training programme, recommendations, pledges from health professionals and a case study on impact.

The aim of this report is to improve access to health services in the Bristol area for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and LGBT+ communities. The programme was funded through the Healthwatch Community Pot, and the Diversity Trust were commissioned to carry out a Health Needs Assessment, focusing on the specific health inequalities experienced by LGBT+ communities. Between 2012 and 2015 the Diversity Trust has asked over 1100 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and LGBT+ people across the West of England region about their experiences of health and wellbeing, and about their experiences accessing and receiving healthcare services.
