Educating healthcare providers and professionals

Our team develops and delivers training sessions and programmes for professionals working across the whole spectrum of cancer care. We provide introductory sessions for people at the start of their journey through to detailed programmes aimed at specific settings or specialties, including clinical research, cancer services across primary and secondary care, through to support and social prescribing. Our aim is to arm you with the knowledge and strategies you need to make your environments more inclusive for LGBTIQ+ patients. To request your own education package, click below to fill out our short form.


People describe our webinars as “Informative, interactive and empowering”. We regularly receive high ratings for the quality of our speakers, slides and interactive features with fantastic reflective learning and commitments to improved practice.

Build a campaign

We work with commissioners and funders to build ground-breaking health campaigns to improve both the visibility and the quality of information available.

We work directly with our community through co-creation workshops, bridging the gap between LGBTIQ+ people and healthcare services to deliver eye-catching campaigns that speak directly to our community. Our funders and collaborators often choose to pair one of our campaigns directly with an education programme to maximise their impact, and we recommend it! 

To discuss how we could work together, head over to our contact form and get in touch.

At the forefront of new developments

We’re publish research and are at the forefront of new developments in LGBTIQ+ cancer. We also listen to our community and hear directly from people going through cancer every day about their experiences.

Check out these links to some of the papers published by our team:

An evaluation of self-perceived knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of UK oncologists about LGBTQ+ patients with cancer

Attitudes of transgender men and non-binary people to cervical screening: a cross-sectional mixed-methods study in the UK

Prevalence of cancer risk factors among transgender and gender diverse individuals: a cross-sectional analysis using UK primary care data

NEW course coming soon

Our team is developing an online course with Guys Cancer Academy. The course will be the most comprehensive LGBTIQ+ Cancer Education programme available in the UK.
