Navajo is a Gay, Lesbian/Bisexual people's project that aims to involve and serve the LGBT community in terms of their social well being across Lancashire.
Navajo was set up in 1999 in the north-west area of the county following work with focus groups and a stakeholder conference. The concept was initiated from the then North West Lancashire Health Promotion Unit.
