Stonewall volunteers

stonewallStonewall Housing knows that older people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender (LGBT) do not have the family networks that many others take for granted. And many live with the fear of prejudice, harassment, discrimination and abuse built up over years when society wasn’t accepting of anything other than heterosexual relationships.

In response Stonewall Housing is starting a new project to match volunteers who can help out with small tasks with older, isolated LGBT people.  The pilot in early 2013 will also test a tech enabled matching scheme using mobile apps, web, text and email-based systems top recruit and match 50 people who would not normally volunteer.

Stonewall Housing are currently looking for backers. For more information see: http://www.stonewallhousing.org
