It’s important that we feel able to bring our authentic selves to the workplace – for some people that can be harder than others due to fear of stigma of being judged or treated differently.

We have partnered with ELOP – East London Out Project, who have been providing counselling for the LGBT+ community for 25 years, to offer you a free range of activities, all of which are currently taking place online:

Imago: NEW Trans & Non-binary+ Mental Health Peer Support Group – inclusive and identity-affirming place for non-cisgender people wishing to enhance their mental health and wellbeing. Weekly, every Wednesday 7pm – 8:30pm.

ReClaim: LBT+ Women’s Trauma Support Group – a weekly group support space, for LBT+ women who have experienced any form of sexual, physical, or emotional violence, abuse, control, or coercion, unhealthy relationships, hate or hate crime, to connect and share with others and gain support around daily struggles.
Weekly, every Wednesday 11am – 12:30pm

ReCharge: LGBT+ Mental Health Peer Support Group – a daytime group focused on mental health, staying well and feeling connected to others to reduce social isolation.
Weekly, every Friday 11am – 12:30pm.

ReFocus: LGBT+ Mental Health Wellbeing Workshops – issue-based workshops that include group activities, skills building, psychoeducation and discussions, aimed at maintaining mental wellbeing.
Weekly, every Monday 6:30pm – 8pm, starting from 12 September.
