Derbyshire LGBT+ Needs Your Support!
We did it
On 16th May 2022 we successfully raised £325 ( + est. £35.00 Gift Aid ) with 13 supporters in 56 days

We are a registered charity and are going through a period of funding loss, we have had to dramatically reduce our service because of this.

Project by Derbyshire LGBT+

Derbyshire LGBT+ is Derbyshire’s only LGBT+ specific support service, we are here to support anyone who is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender or anyone who is having issues with their sexual orientation or gender identity, this includes family and friends.

A lot of people ask why there is still a need for LGBT support in these times, they assume that things are now great for LGBT people in the UK. Our experience however is the complete opposite.  Statistics show us that over the last few years Hate Crime against LGBT people has dramatically risen, bullying in schools is still a major problem, and we still face inequality in goods and services.  Every day we have people coming for support with a whole range of issues from homelessness, violence, bullying and harassment, to issues of coming out around the gender identity or sexual orientation.  Our service is needed now as much as it has ever been.

The devastating impact of COVID-19 has meant a huge loss in income generation, service delivery and a shortage of volunteers. This has also had a impact on the funding that we apply for. Competition for funding is at an all-time high due which has then led into longer waiting times between the initial application and the decision making. 

Demand for our support is at an all-time high but we lack the available funds to be able to do so. Please consider supporting us today!
