Do you want to better understand the specific needs of your LGBTQ+ service users?

Are you aware of the barriers that LGBTQ+ people might be experiencing when accessing your services? 

Do you want to include LGBTQ+ people in your public and patient engagement activities?

Lancashire LGBT has built an excellent reputation for designing, conducting and publishing research reports for organisations.

The advantages of Lancashire LGBT conducting research for your organisation are:

  • We have strong links and a wide reach into LGBTQ+ (including non-binary) communities across Lancashire (including Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool)
  • We have a good understanding of the LGBTQ+ (including non-binary) population, so we know how to ask the right questions in the most effective way
  • We have a strong reputation for publishing well written, relevant and succinct research reports and are very flexible about the format.

‘The information you have provided to us has certainly opened our eyes in several areas where hopefully we can now make improvements. We know that everyone has individual needs when it comes to healthcare, but by asking people for their views allows us to be better informed’ – NHS Fylde & Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group
