We’re pleased to announce we are one of the official charities of The Rainbow Lottery, a weekly online lottery supporting good causes that benefit the LGBTQ+ community, including our very own LGBTQ+ service. This is a great way to show your support, not only during Pride, but all year round.
- To join the lottery visit their website, and select the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Refugee Forum.
- Each ticket costs £1 per week and consists of six numbers. Players can pay monthly or as a one-off payment and can choose which good cause is supported with their ticket purchase.
- 50% of each ticket will go to our LGBTQ+ service which supports refugees and asylum seekers with their specific needs.
Our aim is to support LGBTQ+ refugees and asylum seekers in Nottinghamshire, to reduce isolation and increase wellbeing and confidence. We have a monthly community group, and we provide support and advice on many different matters, such as referring to LGBTQ+ safe housing, legal signposting, hate crime, bullying, signposting to sexual health and trans health services, and general advocacy.
Thanks to your generosity, we could reach our goal of £1,300
