Digital Health & Wellbeing: An LGBTQI+ Conversation

Section: the ALLIANCE Digital Location: Glasgow City Date of event: 17/10/2018 at 12.30 - 16.00

This event will bring together LGBTQI+ people in conversation to explore community health and wellbeing and self management.

LGBTQI+ communities face multiple and complex challenges when accessing health and wellbeing services, both in-person and digitally. These challenges can result in people experiencing significant health inequalities with a poorer quality of life.

With this FREE conversation event, we will bring LGBTQI+ people together to explore what works in supporting community health and wellbeing and what hinders. How we share health and wellbeing information, and, how we connect with others to support our self management.

Throughout Scotland, there is a wealth of groups and services that support our communities, from peer support groups, sexual health services, community choirs and walking groups, but finding these can be challenging.

ALISS (A Local Information System for Scotland), aliss.org (this link will take you away from our website) is a digital solution to the challenge. Funded by the Scottish Government and delivered by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE) to help people find and share information about the groups and services which can help people live well.

By coming along to this conversation event you will:

– Network with and learn from other LGBTQI+ people, groups and organisations

– Gain a better understanding of the groups and services available for LGBTQI+ people throughout Scotland

– Learn how you can add, find and share health and wellbeing information on aliss.org (this link will take you away from our website)

This conversation event is aimed at LGBTQI+ people (both citizens and professionals) who have an interest in health and wellbeing, self management and digital information sharing.

This event is FREE, includes a light networking lunch and reasonable travel expenses can be reimbursed. The venue is accessible and has a gender neutral/accessible toilet.
