Experience LGBT Bedfordshire
Working Together for a Brighter Future
At LGBT Bedfordshire, wellbeing is at the forefront of what we’re working together towards. Our programmes and activities are designed to be a catalyst that helps members of our community reach their goals and fulfil their potential. Join us in bringing about positive change.
Here at LGBT Bedfordshire, we are driven by a single goal; to advance the development of our community, ensuring everyone can achieve whatever they want regardless of their differences. We will work to raise awareness of the issues affecting the LGBT+ community and seek to educate the wider community to enhance cohesion.
What We Do
Making A Difference
We aim to be a safe space and directory for LGBT+ people and their families. Our three areas of work are supporting those people who need help, connecting people with each other through activities that suit them and educating the community through skills courses and training programmes.
Advocacy and Support
Here for you
We can support you to be heard. Many LGBT+ people do not know where to turn to when they are facing difficulties, discrimination or injustice. We can help you stand up for your rights, listen to you and provide information.
At LGBT Bedfordshire, we recognise the importance of connecting with each other. There is a programme of activities where you can find something that suits how you want to participate, even if it's simply having a cup of coffee and a chat. We are dedicated to providing services that deviate from the traditional 'gay scene' activities. Let us know if you have any ideas.
Helping The Community
Our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential through our skills courses. Alongside this we offer LGBT+ based training packages for employers, educators and faith organisations
"To be yourself is truly a revolutionary act, and I think more and more people should try it, because it's gotten me a pretty cool life"
Do you need support with LGBT+ issues? Do you need to know more about our community? Do you want to offer your support in some way? Or do you want to get involved with what's going on? Our range of activities and services means we always have something going on. We would welcome your input, even if you just want a chat.
