Conversation Cafés Lunch with Natalie and Alex - (POSTPONED)


Unfortunately, the LGBT Charter Group has just been informed that one of our external speakers for tomorrow is ill. Tomorrow’s event will, therefore, be re-scheduled and we will be in touch shortly with a new date and time. Thank you for understanding.


The Care Inspectorate’s LGBT Charter Group would like to invite Care Inspectorate staff, volunteers and people working in care services to register for our upcoming conversation cafés.
