We are hosting a new programme of work to improve the experiences of LGBT people living with cancer in Greater Manchester, funded with Macmillan Cancer Support. This programme of work will build on the Foundation's previous activity with the LGBT Cancer Support Alliance over the past two years, and is likely to include topics such as peer support, smoking cessation, access to screening, information and support for trans people affected by cancer, LGBT awareness training for healthcare professionals and much more.

Your input as an LGBT person living with cancer or an LGBT person who has support someone with cancer is invaluable to us, and we will be holding regular 'Shaping the Programme' sessions throughout the year. This is your chance to come together to discuss the project ideas that you would like to see delivered as part of this programme, and support the delivery of the programme to our LGBT communities in Greater Manchester.

LGBT people who are living with cancer or LGBT people who have supported someone with cancer in Greater Manchester and professionals with an interest in this area are invited to get in touch via email to Lawrence.roberts@lgbt.foundation or telephone on 03453 30 30 30 (Extension: 327) to find out more about taking part.
