Having a space to share your experience as an LGBTQ+ Carer and help co-design the services you would like us to provide

It is estimated that 1 in 10 people from the LGBTQ+ community are also a Carer. 

Holding onto your own identity when caring for someone can be really difficult, Carers can become distant from their friends, family and communities. For LGBTQ+ Carers this can be even more challenging, especially if they need to hide their true identity from the person they care for or if they are isolate from other LGBTQ+ people.

We support LGBTQ+ Carers living anywhere in London.

We offer one to one support to LGBTQ+ Carers around accessing support for themselves or the person they are caring for. We can advocate on behalf of a Carer to ensure that services are being supportive and inclusive.

We have monthly in-person Peer Support Meetings for LGBTQ+ Carers. These are held near Waterloo Station or near Blackfriars Station.

We also organise regular, free trips for LGBTQ+ Carers as well as online group events.

We are working hard to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ Carers and are providing LGBTQ+ Carer awareness sessions to both Carers and professionals. As part of this we have put together an LGBTQ+ toolkit for professionals. The aim of the toolkit is to provide health and social care staff with an increased understanding of unpaid Carers’ issues and rights, and in particular the issues faced by LGBTQ+ Carers.

Some our wonderful Carers Morgan, Michael and Amit have written blog posts about their journeys as LGBTQ+ Carers. To read their stories click the buttons below.

Our Peer Support and Wellbeing events are for LGBTQ+ Carers living anywhere in London. They give Carers an opportunity to share lived experiences with other Carers who have an understanding of what it means to be an LGBTQ+ Carer.

We run in-person LGBTQ+ Carer peer support meetings (near Waterloo or Blackfriars Station), regular trips for LGBTQ+ Carers and online group meetings too. Click the button below for more info.
