Outsiders London Lunch to switch to Finch’s, 12a Finsbury Square EC2A 1AN

Everyone enjoyed the 35th Anniversary of the Outsiders at Finch’s in Finsbury Square — the staff were really helpful, our space was a bigger and brighter, they don’t have the television on, and the food amazing. So we are going to switch from their sister pub, Paternoster. There is an underground car park opposite, and it’s 4 minutes from Old Street tube, 6 minutes from Moorgate, and a bit further from Liverpool Street. We will put the details of transport and details up on this site (See Club – Events).20141124_Outsiders_Lunch_Finchs_Finsbury_Sq_1313

Outsiders begins in Australia

SHADA to challenge governing bodies to include sex and disability in guidelines

18thSHADA Best

One of the reasons health and social care fail to discuss sex and relationships with their disabled clients is that they don’t feel they have permission and the training from their governing bodies. We intend to turn that around.

SHADA plan to persuade governing bodies to include sex and disability in their training, guidelines and policies

The Sexual Health and Disability Alliance are starting a project which aims to persuade all the governing bodies to include sex and disability in their training, guidelines and policies. This is because health and social care professionals who work with disabled people say they feel they don’t have permission, nor the training to include this in their holistic care.
