Finding Safe Spaces

Last year, 78 people who called us for housing advice told us they were rough sleeping. A further 143 said they were part of the hidden homeless, unknown to housing services, who were living in insecure and often unsafe spaces.


Finding Safe Spaces is a Stonewall Housing and Homeless Transition Fund project that worked with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT*) Rough Sleepers in Brighton, London and Manchester.

Through research, Finding Safe Spaces found that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* people will have needs associated with their sexual orientation and/or gender identity when they are sleeping rough.

Through this research we were able to develop a Finding Safe Spaces Training Toolkit, designed based on the outcomes of this project, along with other specialist training available from Stonewall Housing.
