The New Normal: Life After Lockdown for LGBTQIA+ People in England
The National LGBT Partnership, fellow members of the VCSE Health & Wellbeing Alliance, have produced a new report – The New Normal: Life After Lockdown for LGBTQIA+ People in England
The COVID-19 pandemic has both highlighted and exacerbated existing health inequalities for already marginalised and disadvantaged groups – and LGBTQIA+ communities are no different. Lockdowns had a significant negative impact on access to healthcare, mental health, alcohol and substance abuse, isolation, experiences of violence, homelessness and insecure housing and financial well-being.
The report highlights the importance of taking an intersectional approach when considering and addressing health inequalities for LGBTQIA+ people.
