New peer support sessions from LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project

The Leeds LGBTQ+ Health Inclusion Project will be running new peer support sessions. These are for LGBTQ+ people who are either autistic, have a learning disability or mental health difficulties living in Leeds. The sessions are free to attend.

Peer support means people using their own experiences to help each other. We will provide a space where you feel accepted and understood. The project’s sessions will be run by people with lived experience.

If you would like to use the project’s peer support, you need to attend a workshop first. This is on Monday 2nd December from 5:30pm-8:30pm. It is at Yorkshire MESMAC’s office in Leeds City Centre at this address:

Yorkshire MESMAC
22/23 Blayds Yard
Leeds
LS1 4AD

Workshop dates

After the starting workshop, there will be six peer support sessions. There will be one session every week. They start on Monday 6th January, running from 6pm to 8pm at a venue to be confirmed.

If you would like to book a place for the project’s peer support, please contact the LGBTQ+ team:
