Norfolk LGBT + Project
Published date: November 2018
In 2009 Norfolk LGBT+ Project was registered as a charity and is a community-based service that is run by and for the LGBT+ community. Working in partnership with organisations, schools, communities and local groups, it is influenced by the needs of its users so that it can provide the best service for the LGBT+ community in Norfolk and Waveney.
Their objective is: “to relieve the mental and emotional suffering of people in Norfolk and Waveney who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT+) or in doubt of their sexuality or gender identity by the provision of advice, peer-support and information. The preservation and protection of public health, in particular amongst LGBT+ people, by raising awareness and providing information about matters that affect their physical, mental and sexual health.”
They offer LGBT+ drop in groups, phone and email support, 1:1 appointments and school and sexual health outreach work. For more information about the services available, please visit:
