The Big Give Christmas Challenge, 2021

This year we’ve been selected to participate in the Big Give Christmas Challenge 2021, which is the UK’s largest match funding campaign. 

We've decided to use this opportunity to increase the capacity of our counselling service so that more LGBTQ will have the opportunity to talk to an LGBTQ counsellor which really helps people to cope with the effects of trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety/panic attacks, eating disorders and depression amongst many other issues. To be able to do this our target this year is £4K! 

Our campaign aims are:

  • We would like to offer more online counselling sessions so LGBTQ people around the UK can access this vital service which we have seen to be just as impactful remotely.
  • Recruit, train and supervise 5 more LGBTQ counsellors with an emphasis on recruiting trans/non-binary and PoC counsellors.
  • Expand our counselling service to reach more 50+ LGBTQ service users who are amongst the most isolated in our communities.
