For 15 years, Over the Rainbow (OTR) has been a local and national beacon, recognised for its outstanding support, advocacy, and service provision to the LGBT community, and is widely known to be at the very heart of that community.

DCH provides information, advice and support to the fabulous LGBT community of Dorset. We provide a weekly sexual health clinic, host social support groups and provide teaching and training to raise awareness of our community. Our support reduces isolation and vulnerability and provides crucial healthcare support.

Cuts to funding have challenged the continuation of this service from its current premises and we are seeking £27,000 to cover the rent for the coming year.

We are working with Dorset County Hospital Charity to protect the service in the short term, while we work with the LGBT community and local commissioners to secure long term funding. Any funds that you are able to pledge will be gratefully received, and used for the benefit of our community.

About the charity

DCH Charity raises funds to enhance patient care at Dorset County Hospital providing support that is above and beyond the NHS budget. Your generous support makes a positive difference and touches the lives of our community.
