About Project Freedom
The need for high quality housing with care and support has been identified as a key priority for the older LGBT community. A report by Stonewall Housing – Building Safe Choices- LGBT Housing futures: a feasibility study published in 2016 recommended:
“Support and encouragement for the development of specialist older LGBT housing schemes across all tenures.
Members of The Leeds LGBT Community Hub and the Leeds Mapping Group have responded to this agenda by embarking on an ambitious project to set up a new asset based community development consisting of inter-generational housing, social care, cultural facilities and an employment & training hub aimed at meeting the demonstrable and evidenced need, demand and expectations from the LGBT+ community of Leeds, particularly older community members who have care and support needs.
The key objective is the building of a sustainable community which connects and empowers people to live, work and play independently. This in turn will reduce the housing and care challenges that face older LGBT+ people, who are more likely to live alone and less likely to have children or extended family networks.
Your response to this public consultation is being collected by Leeds LGBT+ Mapping Group who are processing the data on behalf of Project Freedom.
