We are currently seeking participants to partake in a series of learning sets looking at ways that black and minority ethnic voluntary and community organisations can make improvements for men who have sex with men (MSM). The sessions will cover gay, bisexual, and transgender communities as well as men who have sex with men and do not define themselves as gay, bisexual, or transgender. We will also seek to engage these individuals in a supportive learning environment.
There will be five half-day sessions, with a month in between each session. Sessions would take place from March through to July. The Race Equality Foundation will host and run the learning sets, and will provide reasonable expenses.
Participants will need to commit to attending the five sessions, and to undertake some work in between each session.
This work is being carried out with Public Health England, as there is evidence to suggest that MSM from black and minority ethnic communities suffer greater health inequalities and that their access to support from community and voluntary organisations is limited.
If you are interested in taking part in this work, please email Saliha Majeed.
