Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans+ (LGBT+)

Citizens Advice Gateshead are currently undertaking a research project looking into common issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ communities in the North East and whether there are barriers to seeking advice about them. The research aims to identify issues specific to the LGBTQIA+ community that can be addressed by improvements to local Citizens Advice services.

If you are LGBTQIA+, 18 or over, and live in the North East, please contribute to the research through answering the questionnaire:

LGBTQIA+ Citizens Advice Questionnaire

The invaluable responses received from this research endeavour will play a crucial role in instigating positive change. By identifying and understanding the policies and practices that contribute to the hardship and inequality faced by clients, they can work towards implementing impactful solutions.

Thank you for your support.

Sexual Health Services

A non-judgemental and welcoming approach to everyone is key to the philosophy of our service.

We aim to offer holistic sexual health care across a full range of sexual health services designed to meet the specific need of individuals within LGBT communities.

To enable us to provide the most suitable care for you, we will need to ask all patients a few questions to ensure you are signposted to the most appropriate service. These questions may include asking about your sexual orientation, gender, identity and preferred name.

Confidentiality and respect is an especially sensitive issue for all individuals and your information will not be used for any other purpose.

Feel free to contact us and come along for contraceptive provision and sexual health testing, advice and/or signposting to other services.

Please use the links to the right to provide you with additional information and contacts.
