Summit Support works with a community who are vulnerable to isolation and social exclusion due to issues around their sexuality or gender identity. This population is adversely and disproportionately affected by a number of issues including mental health problems, substance misuse, discrimination and hate crime, sexual health and HIV infection and cultural sexuality issues.
We run twice-monthly LGBTQ peer-support/social groups on a Saturday (2nd and 4th Saturday of each month) between 11am-2pm. The group meets for tea/coffee, a bite to eat and social activities. We also regularly organise days out and relevant information sessions.
We also run a weekly Transgender peer-support group on a Monday between 10.30am-12pm. This group provides a safe space to talk to other individuals on their own gender identity journey, providing opportunities to share stories, information and experiences.
Our Rainbow Project is run in partnership with CHADD’s New Beginnings Domestic Abuse Services to reach more people from the LGBTQ community who are currently, or have previously experienced domestic abuse. Rainbow offers peer support, drop in sessions and specialist LGBTQ support groups.
