Addressing Isolation in the LGBT+ community in Nottingham
  • Including support around specific LGBT+ health issues
  • Support around Hate Crime
Providing Safe Physical and Virtual Spaces for women
  • Support communities through providing physical and/or online space, particularly women who face increased social isolation or multiple barriers to inclusion.
Empowering Women

  • Through group or one to one support.
  • Around getting their voices and issues better heard and understood by decision makers.
  • Improving and addressing physical health and wellbeing needs for women.
Providing activities to complement mainstream mental health provision
