Foreword

There are many Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB & T) organisations, groups, forums and clubs operating in the South West region. The South West LGBT Directory pulls together a detailed list of these organisations, providing contact details and a snap shot of their day to day business.

We hope that this directory will be used by members of the public wanting to access LGB and/or T advice, guidance and support, as well as public sector bodies in the region wishing to engage with the LGB & T community.

If you would like your organisation to be added to the directory, please contact Moira Anderson at Equality South West:

E: Moira.Anderson@equalitysouthwest.org.uk

T: 01823 250834

A: East Reach House, East Reach, Taunton, Somerset, TA1 3EN

Please note that due to the nature of some of the organisations included in the directory it has not always been possible to publish contact

addresses.

We hope that you find the directory useful.
