This week sees the launch of the Rainbow Café, a new project of Switchboard.
Rainbow Café will support LGBTQ people living with memory loss and dementia, their friends, families and loved ones. This, much-needed, community service is made possible thanks to Brighton Pride and the funding received via the Rainbow Fund.
We are grateful that Brighton Pride, via the Rainbow Fund is able to redistribute money raised at Pride back into the local LGBTQ sector and fund many vital and unique community projects in the City.
This funding would not exist otherwise and with it we are able to support those more vulnerable within our communities.
We should all be under no illusion that without this support many LGBTQ and HIV+ projects and services that exist would be at real risk of closing and we cannot let this happen.
Switchboard thanks Pride for supporting all the local LGBTQ and HIV+ charities in the City and the Switchboard team will be marching with Pride this summer.
