Housing and homelessness support
The Outside Project
The Outside Project is a homeless/ crisis shelter and community centre in response to those within the LGBTIQ+ community who feel endangered, who are homeless, ‘hidden’ homeless and feel that they are on the outside of services due to historical and present prejudice in society and in their homes. The project is comprised of LGBTIQ+ colleagues, friends and activists who work in the homeless sector and have lived experiences of homelessness and the unique, complex issues the community faces.
The LGBTIQ+ Centre is The Outside Project main HQ. We hold open and private meetings, groups and activities. It is home to multiple LGBTIQ+ and Homelessness grassroots groups that we work alongside or support to develop on a ‘PWYC’ basis. Please see the noticeboard for upcoming events and timetable below on regular weekly groups.
