Building a Community

For over twenty years, Lesbian and Bisexual women in Cork have been providing support services for others in our community and have been active in promoting equality for Lesbian and Bisexual women.

This culminated in the foundation of LINC (Lesbians in Cork), an organisation committed to informing and impacting upon social inclusion policy and practice and providing peer support services to all in our community.

LINC is the only community development organisation working exclusively with Lesbian and Bisexual women in the Republic of Ireland. Through the LINC Resource Centre, we have completed a comprehensive outreach training and development programme.

We also actively engage with various representative groups in the community including the young women’s group, lesbian parents’ group, the group founded to support the parents of lesbian and bisexual women and the older lesbian group.
