In this episode, BCHA’s Co Production Development Worker Mike Knowles, talks to BCHA volunteer Kirsty about her experiences as a lesbian single mother, who faced being homeless, while alone and with a young child. Kirsty is keen that others don’t struggle to find help and acceptance as she did, and would like to create a platform where members of the LGBTQIA+ community can share and talk about the issues they encounter.
We welcome your views and ideas on creating a safe space platform for members of the LGBTQIA+ community, so please get in touch with Mike Knowles, BCHA Peer Mentor Development Worker Tel: 07971 616436 email@example.com if you are interested and would like to share your thoughts.
Homeless Link has produced an excellent Supporting LGBTIQ+ people document for frontline staff, which lists useful organisations for LGBTQIA+ people who are experiencing exclusion and isolation to reach out to. https://bit.ly/3nV887F
