LGBT+ Health Project

The LGBT+ Health Project aims to support and improve the health outcomes of the LGBT+ Community in Waterford and South Tipperary.

The role of the LGBT+ Health Worker is:

  • To improve the health outcomes of lgbt+ people in the community
  • To coordinate and deliver the SECH LGBT+ Awareness Training Model in order to enhance knowledge and understanding of the needs of LGBT+ Service Users.
  • To act as a key point of contact for training for health service providers around LGBT+ information.
  • To work with the LGBT+ Project response

What we do:

  • We provide a safe space for lgbt+ adults in the community to come and meet peers and support each other through developmental group work. There is a support group that takes place every Monday evening from 6pm to 8pm
  • We offer training to HSE staff, service providers and any organisation looking to build their awareness around lgb+. The training aims to enhance the development of a welcoming and supportive environment to both employees and service users who identify as lgb+. There is no fee to take part in the training
  • We offer one to one support


Currently there are two support groups running 18 +:

  • LGBT+ Peer and support group Monday Evenings
  • Trans Peer and support group Wednesday Evenings
