Pride in Practice Impact Report 2018

LGBT Foundation conducted research into lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people’s experiences of primary care services in order to further understand what access to general practice, dentistry, pharmacy and optometry looks like for this community of identity.

Primary Care Survey Report 2017

Since 2016 Pride in Practice has supported 264 primary care services to be able to meet the needs of LGBT people in Greater Manchester as part of GM Health and Social Care Partnership’s commitment to meeting the needs of GM’s diverse communities of identity.

Severe and Multiple Disadvantage Project

In January 2015, Lankelly Chase released the Hard Edges report, highlighting what life is like for people facing ‘severe and multiple disadvantage’ (SMD), generally defined as a combination of homelessness, drug and alcohol abuse, offending, and mental health issues. However, whilst the findings provided valuable insight into what SMD looks like for the general population, we do not know what proportion of the respondents identified as LGBT. As a result, we are unsure how LGBT people may experience severe and multiple disadvantage in similar or different ways.
