LGBT Health and Inclusion Project

LL3What is LGBT HIP?

The LGBT Health and Inclusion Project (LGBT HIP) is a project to engage with lesbians, gay men, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people who live, work, study or socialise in Brighton and Hove on our healthcare and Council service needs, and other city-wide issues in order to influence future provisions. We aim to be the bridge between the local LGBT communities and the Council, NHS and other services. You can find out more about our mission here, and read about the work we've been doing here. All of our publications can be found here

Community Engagement

We engage with lesbians, gay men, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) people who live, work and socialise in Brighton & Hove about issues that matter to us. You tell us about your experiences and opinions, and we will tell the council and NHS how to make things better for LGBTQ people.

Community Development

LGBT HIP works for inclusion and diversity within the LGBTQ community. That means working with partners to  develop safe spaces for LGBTQ people with intersecting identities and needs including: Disabled LGBTQ people, LGBTQ people from Black, Minority Ethnic backgrounds, LGBTQ people of faith and more.

Support for LGBT Groups

We offer support for new LGBTQ groups to set up, and existing LGBT groups to develop and grow. If you want support with finding funding, developing policies or accessing training– we can help with that!

Meet the LGBT HIP Team

LGBT HIP is facilitated by Project Manager Meg Lewis and is based at Brighton and Hove LGBT Switchboard. We receive funding from Brighton and Hove City Council and Brighton and Hove Clinical Commissioning Group but we are completely independent - they fund us to ask the questions, the answers come from you.

Information on LGBT HIP and other LGBT services in the city can be found in a range of languages here.
