Story

The Outside Project is the UK's first LGBTIQ+ Homeless/Crisis Shelter. It was created in response to the higher rate of domestic abuse, hate crime & homelessness amongst our community. We also run an LGBTIQ+ Community Centre, support sober spaces at events & advise & advocate for identity responsive support services across the sector.

We launched our fundraising at London Pride 2017. Due to the huge amount of support & volunteer applications we received we were able to buy a 12 bed, rock star tour bus & open the shelter in December 2017. We began the community hub in mid-December.

We support LGBTIQ+ people who are fleeing violence & abuse on the street, in winter shelters/mainstream services & in their homes. We have supported guests to return home, find safe accommodation, return to work & link in with identity responsive services such as Galop & Stonewall Housing for specialist support around hate crime, abuse & housing.

We are an independent, grassroots project set up by members of the LGBTIQ+ community who work in the homelessness sector & have lived experience of homelessness & the issues our community face.
