60 second overview
Stonewall Housing provides housing advice and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people. They advocate for vulnerable people, helping them to build resilience and the skills to live rich and rewarding lives. They campaign for them and influence the policies and practice that impact on LGBT+ rights.
Trust for London funding from the Good Homes and Neighbourhoods programme has been provided to establish a new pathway approach for LGBT+ housing across London. The funding will help the senior management team to connect and work with local authorities and housing providers. It will also contribute to the organisation gathering evidence, research and supporting service-users and tenants to influence commissioning practice, policy, service improvement and provision.
