We are a hardworking, committed charity - join us in making a real difference to LGBT+ people in Suffolk


Welcome

We are a registered charity and support organisation that promotes equality and diversity in Suffolk. Our fundamental aim is to combat sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination.

There are many ways in which we support Suffolk's LGBT+ population. These include free counselling, social gatherings and equality and diversity training.

Need support?

Do you identify as gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender or non-binary? Does your sexuality or gender fall outside hetronormitivity? Are you a carer, friend or relative of someone who you think may require support?

What we offer

Free Confidential Counselling Service - we provide a free counselling service to individuals who identify with a sexuality or gender outside the status quo. We also extend this service to family and friends. For further information or to book some sessions please email:

LGBT+ Awareness Workshops - We have qualified, experienced trainers to provide these workshops to any organisation who feels they may benefit. For further information or to book a workshop please email:
