About Lesbian & Gay Foundation
Based in Manchester, the Lesbian & Gay Foundation offers a wide portfolio of well-established services to meet the needs of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people.
With no national data on sexual orientation, designing health services to support the LGB community is difficult. The Lesbian & Gay Foundation provides GPs with guidance on how to discuss health issues with LGB patients and improve their experience of health services.
