We’re very happy to be starting a new monthly support group for carers who identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning).  The first meeting takes place just after the end of Carers Week on Monday 19th June.  The meeting is  from 1 – 3pm  at Carers Leeds and LGBTQ carers are welcome to join us.  The group will then meet  on the 3rd Monday of each month.

At the first meeting, we can start planning how the group will run and the programme.  We’ll also be talking about Leeds Pride which is on 6th August and drumming up support for a group to join the procession from Millennium Square under the Carers Leed s LGBTQ banner.

This new support group demonstrates the commitment of Carers Leeds to supporting LGBTQ carers who are welcome to access all parts of our service.
