Finding Safe Spaces is a Stonewall Housing and Homeless Transition Fund project that has been working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT*) rough sleepers in Manchester, East London and Brighton.
Through research, Finding Safe Spaces has found Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* people will have needs associated with their sexual orientation and/or gender identity when they are rough sleeping.
Being able to meet those needs and offer the appropriate care starts with some important questions.
Stonewall Housing are inviting you to the launch of Finding Safe Spaces, where we will be talking about the questions we asked, what LGBT* rough sleepers told us and how we can work together to meet needs and improve care for LGBT* people.
The launch will be taking place on Wednesday 11th February from 1.30pm to 4.00pm in the Lecture Room at Toynbee Hall in East London.
Lunch and registration will at 1.30pm, with the launch starting at 2.00pm. From there, we will be showcasing the training that has been designed based on the outcomes of this project along with other specialist training available from Stonewall Housing.
Please can you let us know if you would like to come, including if you have any accessibility or dietary requirements.
