Here are just some of the organisations that we have been fortunate enough to have as our partners and grantmakers. They help Support U keep offering the array of LGBTQ+ services we currently supply to those living in Reading and the Thames Valley.
If you would like to support us in this way, please get in touch.
People's Health Trust - Active Communities provides funding for local projects run by local people for the benefit of the community. PHT are supporting the creation and integration of our various support groups and social networks. These support groups and social networks allow individuals to access much-needed assistance with general life queries and support positive health and wellbeing.
The National Lottery Heritage Fund is the largest dedicated funder of heritage in the UK. The NLHF funding has been provided throughout the last 5 years for projects related to LGBT+ History, heritage and culture. Our current project (Broken Futures) is due to complete in 2021.
With funding provided by the National Emergencies Trust, LGBT Consortium funding is focussed on supporting organisations across the UK during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The funding provided to us has secured part of the frontline team over the initial pandemic period to ensure our service users get the help they need when they need it.
Comic Relief has made emergency funding available to support LGBTQ+ charities across England in their battle against the impacts of Covid-19. Funding from this strand was delivered with the support of Metro Charity. We received support to continue to provide our chat, email and telephone service during the pandemic, making sure we are here in core hours across the working day.
The AHF promotes the conservation and sustainable re-use of historic buildings for the benefit of communities across the UK, particularly in economically disadvantaged areas. The charity exists to help communities find enterprising ways to revitalise the old buildings they love. Funding provided by AHF is helping Support U with its ambition to own its home and deliver LGBTQ+ heritage within our community for years to come.
