The launch of our HIV Rapid Testing in selected Pharmacies across Cumbria started last year.

We are pleased to announce the launch of our 'In the Community' project which is the to enable people to get a rapid HIV test done in selected local pharmacies around the county. This project is currently on going and will be available until the end of October 2017.

Barriers around sexual abuse and violence services in Cumbria.

We recently launched a survey around Sexual abuse and Violence in Cumbria within the LGBT community and what barriers they faced if they reported it. This survey is now closed, and we are currently working on the findings to report back to the Police and Crime Commissioner of Cumbria, Mr McCall. Our finding should help come up with an action plan of how to make it easier to report and access sexual abuse services throughout Cumbria. Outreach is committed to making sure your participation won't go unnoticed and that something will actually be done with the findings. We will be releasing the findings in the next couple of months as a research paper and it will available to download on our website, so keep an eye out.

We would like to thank you for your participation and remember that if you need any help or support around this issue to contact The Bridgeway: 0808 118 6432

Today marks the barbaric murder of Xulhaz Mannan, the founder of Bangladesh's first and only LGBT magazine on April 25 2016.

His death followed a series of horrific murders of bloggers and activists.

Mannan, 35, was a founding editor of Roopbaan, the country's only magazine for the LGBT community.
The magazine had been launched in 2014 to promote greater acceptance of LGBT communities in Bangladesh.

Mannan, was also behind an annual "rainbow rally" in Dhaka, which since 2014 had been held on 14 April, at the beginning of the Bengali new year.

We don't look at volunteering like most places do, we want to know what you want from us, not what we want from you.
