Fair for All LGBT , as the Inclusion Project is now known, is a partnership between Stonewall Scotland and the Scottish Executive Health Department. The project supports NHS boards to engage with local LGBT people and community organisations and work with them to implement the recommendations in Towards a Healthier LGBT Scotland locally.

More recently, pilot work with NHS boards resulted in the project publishing Good LGBT Practice in the NHS and Getting it Right: LGBT Research Guidelines which address many of the recommendations from the initial report. More information about the projects work can be found at: http://www.lgbthealthscotland.org.uk/home.htm.

From April 2008 the project will be integrated with the other strands of our Fair for All programme to provide a single mainstream source of advice and support to ensure that whatever the individual circumstances of peoples lives, including age, gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation or other circumstances, they have access to the right health service for their needs.
