During the COVID-19 pandemic we received emergency funding to develop an outreach and emergency hotel service. The GLA allocated COVID-19 hotel rooms to our Outreach for the exclusive use of the LGBTIQ+ community.
In partnership with a national hotel chain we opened a hotel in Soho exclusively for the use of the LGBTIQ+ community from September 2020 – February 2021.
Our Outreach team continues to support LGBTIQ+ people in the COVID-19 protect hotels today.
We are looking to develop this project into a LGBTIQ+ Pan-London Outreach and emergency accommodation provision. Please contact our Managing Director Carla Ecola if you are a hotel provider or a funder interested in supporting this project.
You can find an introduction and resource list for staff to develop good practice and welcoming services for people who identify as LGBTIQ+ here.
