MindOut, the LGBTQ mental health project has been awarded a three-year grant for £55,944 from the Lloyds Bank Foundation under their Invest programme.
The grant will cover costs for an LGBTQ mental health advocate to support people who are insecurely housed.
Helen Jones, MindOut CEO, said: “Many of our clients are hard hit by the current housing crisis. Some are LGBTQ people moving to Brighton to seek better, safer lives, some are Brighton residents who are in desperate housing need. We are delighted that Lloyds Bank Foundation has awarded us a grant to work directly to provide advice and information, representation, casework and support to help people seek safe solutions and secure affordable tenancies. Safe housing is essential for good mental health”.
Emma Tregear, Grant Manager for the South East & London, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to fund the work of MindOut as they advocate for people in the LGBTQ community who need support in making the transition to more secure housing and a more positive position in life.”
All MindOut services are provided by and for LGBTQ people with lived experience of mental health issues. All services are confidential, impartial, non-judgemental, free, person-centred and empowering.
