BRIGHTON LGBTIQ+ SHELTER from The Outside Project  

Why do we need an LGBTIQ+ Shelter in Brighton?

25% of the population of Brighton identify as LGBTIQ+ but we do not have a shelter or housing support service.

Last year Switchboard conducted a piece of research with LGBTIQ+ people in Brighton andĀ Hove. Of the 600 respondents, 22% of people felt unsafe in their homes.

Our community do not feel safe in mainstream housing services. Our homelessness is thereforeĀ consideredĀ 'invisible' as we rely on mutual aid / sofa surfing, transactional sex or hiding ourĀ identity to stay safe.

For these reasons - and many more - a coalition of LGBTIQ+ by and for organisations haveĀ come together to take action and open an LGBTIQ+ Winter Night Shelter in January 2023.
