This new support group will meet the first Tuesday of every month 2-3:30 via Zoom.
Greater Manchester has a reputation for being a place where there is a strong commitment to improving the lives of all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans citizens. There is a wide network of LGBTQ+ support throughout Greater Manchester.
Evidence shows that people in this community often desire to seek support from inside the community itself and to be supported by mainstream inclusive services. The Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Online Dementia Support Group will meet the first Tuesday of every month 2-3:30, via Zoom.
Download the flyer for more information about the group, how to join the group via Zoom and who to contact if you’re interested in finding out more and/or joining on the day.
The first meeting of this group will be 3rd August 2021.
