Pat McCusker - Local Services Coordinator
I've been working at Yorkshire MESMAC in various roles since 2011, but have managed the Wakefield service since 2017. I have a particular interest in working with LGBT+ Refugees and Asylum seekers, and people living with HIV. I'm experienced in developing and delivering training for community groups who are at very high risk or infection, for example gay and bisexual men who engage in chem-sex. I've got lots of experience in developing peer support groups and HIV prevention and support interventions in community settings like Saunas and Churches.
Outside of work I like to read about politics and Queer Theory, and I'm an activist particularly in matters of migration and asylum rights. I also like growing things in my greenhouse.
