MindOut’s Response to the Clare Project Statement

Earlier this week, The Clare Project released a statement that included some serious allegations against MindOut.

We are taking time to address these allegations both internally and directly with the Clare Project.

We are disappointed that an organisation we work closely with in the sector would choose to take such action. This way of communication can be divisive and create distress and anxiety for people within our LGBTQ communities, the very people we’re here to support.

We are concerned to read the comments which are defamatory and have written to the Clare Project with the aim of addressing these and prevent further harm in the sector, to partner relationships and our communities we both serve.

We want to reassure our service users, stakeholders, and supporters that MindOut:

  • Has always, and continues to provide inclusive services for all members of our LGBTQ communities, including specific services for trans and gender-diverse people.
  • Has implemented changes and redundancies in order to protect front line services and our future sustainability
  • Remains committed to listening and learning from feedback across the sector.

We believe in open dialogue and trust that this situation can be resolved swiftly.

We appreciate your ongoing support and trust in MindOut’s mission.
