This is a really exciting time to join the 3 Cheshire Hospices with its partner Chester Pride. We have our mind set on encouraging and including our LGBTQ+ community to access our services and build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact. Our ambition for this client group is that our Hospices be places where everyone is welcome, is free to be themselves, and has an equal sense of belonging and this starts with our successful bid for funding to begin a 1 year project.  This organic project will advocate our Hospices as places of choice and care for people from our LGBTQ+ community nearing, or at end of life. The role will lead change, provide education & awareness and support staff to develop the role of champions to work with the community reaching out into our borough to promote our services and ensure inclusion in our services and provide end of life support, being creative when our services do not fit the client group.

The success of the project will be included in a conference (either virtual or face to face) to disseminate learning and practice
