Opening Hours  There are no opening hours as such as we are a support group for the LGBT community and as such we arrange regular community meetings.

 

 

The group was formed in January 2010 to form a self-support group for local LGBT members. We have a steering group who come together to arrange local social events for the community. We also organise awareness raising events. We work with local organisations as well as statutory bodies to give a voice to the needs of the local LGBT community and to bring up to date helpful information to community members. Where people have specific needs the group refer on so that individuals and their families can receive the best advice possible.

We generally act as a gateway for our community members to access advice. We also aim to bring organisations and agencies to the group meetings so that the group members can learn how to access help in a safe environment. We have worked alongside Victim Support for example in order to provide victims of LGBT hate crimes with an extra level of support.
