Event description

Description

Come and join us to find out what SAND has been doing - who we have been working with, what difference it makes and how you can make the most of it all. We now need your ideas to help to take SAND's work to the next stage: looking at hopes and fears for the future and practical ways to move forward.

You will hear from members of the SAND Action Group and local Health & Social Care Providers who have been listening and responding to us - in a whole variety of ways. We will also be screening Gen Silent (25 min version), the film that was the catalyst for the start of SAND. We have shown the trailer at every event we have been to and it never fails to touch hearts and raise questions. We have lost count of the number of requests we have had to see the whole film - so this is it, and in an environment to share and discuss the issues it raises.

SAND is now in its fifth year, so 2017 feels like a good time to reflect on what we've achieved, review why this work is so important, and look forward to a better future for older and old lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people accessing health and social care in Shropshire.

and .... as if that weren't enough, there'll be food, as we always think that the best conversations come on a satisfied stomach.

The timetable is still subject to a few tweaks but currently looks a bit like this
