We aim to provide a visible and dedicated safe space for local LGBT+ folks, family and friends, to meet, participate and share with the wider community.
A survey carried out early in 2020 showed:
- 64% of respondents said we need a safe space
- 56% of respondents said we need activity groups e.g. befriending, yoga, walking, reading
- 44% of respondents said we need well-being workshops
- 41% of respondents said we need counselling
Other needs identified include clinics – gender, sexual health and other support services – housing, financial, employment
During the lockdown, we started virtual socials to bring people together. These include mindfulness, quizzes, speakers and general catching-up.
