Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Plus Forum for Merton


Merton's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Plus (LGBT+) Forum meet every three months and provides a platform for LGBT+ people to engage with the council, schools, health care providers and other relevant agencies on matters that affect the LGBT+ community.

The Forum is open to LGBT+ people who live, work, or spend time in Merton with the aim to provide support, advice, signposting and improve dialogue between local communities.

We also aim to raise and increase community awareness of LGBT+ issues.

We are currently looking for volunteers to develop and run the Forum. If you are interested please contact us at
