There are lots of opportunities for LGBT people in Lancashire to find support and contact with like-minded people.

Check out our Peer & Social Support listings for an up to date list of groups around Lancashire, and our News page for upcoming events and meetings.

LGBT people can experience additional challenges, difficulties and sometimes conflicts that are not experienced by heterosexual and cisgender (non-trans) people in the wider community.

For some LGBT people isolation, homophobia and hate crime are still big issues and this can have a huge impact on confidence, mental health and the quality of their lives.

You can report hate crime online to Lancashire Police here or you can report anonymously to True Vision here
