The Black Lives Matter demonstration in Bristol recently amplified the message from the Black community that systemic racial discrimination and inequality must end, and end now.  Many people from Black and Asian communities in Bristol have been fighting this cause for decades and it is right that the entire city and its citizens now come together to embed lasting change and improved outcomes for our Black citizens politically, socially and economically.

Opening Doors London has organised this webinar to discuss how we can support older LGBT+ people's mental health during COVID-19, through written and phone-based communication. The webinar will be delivered on Zoom.
