Our main project, is to create a 24/7 community centre & crisis/homeless shelter for the LGBTIQ+ community. We crowdfunder to deliver a winter shelter as a pilot with the support of 50+ volunteers.

What we'll deliver:

  • 1-1 support with trained LGBTIQ+ professionals
  • Social group for the LGBTIQ+ community
  • Shared workspace for LGBTIQ+ professionals/artists start-up businesses with support from professionals.

Why it's a great idea:

Our community make up the 'hidden homeless' population, finding 'mainstream' services inaccessible. (Lucy Pedrick - Out & Included Report, Stonewall Housing - Finding Safer Spaces) We are trained professionals in the homelessness & support sector who have volunteered to create this grassroots, independent project to support our community & 'bridge the gap' between our community & the statutory services provided. We will also provide much needed affordable co-working space for LGBTIQ+ start up businesses & artists who again find 'mainstream' co-working spaces inaccessible.

Steps to get it done:

This project has already had a great impact on the LGBTIQ+ community in London. Our volunteers & partner agencies found our knowledge of the complex & multiple needs of LGBTIQ+ Community, training & support very helpful. Our guests & clients have felt that the project has been a life changing support for them, linking them to services they wouldn't have known existed.
