Stonewall Housing provide lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people with housing advice and support, either in their own homes or in supported housing. They also lobby for LGBT housing rights.
The Liberal Democrat MP met with the Chief Executive, a staff member and some of the residents to discuss the issues affecting both the LGBT community and charities.
After the visit, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was great to visit the house and hear about Stonewall Housing’s work. They provide an invaluable service to vulnerable LGBT people in my constituency and across the city.
“They would like to do more. It was great to hear about their aims and ambitions to expand their support network, for instance to vulnerable LGBT asylum seekers.
“Charities are having a tough time at the moment, but I am confident Stonewall Housing will get through it and come out stronger. I wish them all the best for the future.”
