Intercom-Logo-with +_0

The Intercom Trust is a lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans+ charity. We have been working in the South West for over 20 years to build a society where LGBT+ people can live with equality and respect, whatever their sexual orientation and gender identity. The Intercom Trust has the following six service-areas:

  • Help, Support and Advocacy  – This service provides direct support to members of the public who are in need because of prejudice or discrimination.
  • Training – We provide general LGTB+ awareness-training sessions as well as bespoke and specialist training on specific LGBT+ issues to all sorts of organisations, but in particular to schools, the public-sector, third-sector agencies, and commercial firms.
  • Events– We hold regular conferences to share the findings of our research, our consultations, and other identified community issues. We also hold regular Gender Identity conferences and Family Days.
  • Consultancy – As a community-skilled resource, Intercom provides consultancy, needs-assessments and diversity-proofing for many organisations and in particular for local government, the police and the NHS.
  • Infrastructure Support – As the only LGBT+ infrastructure organisation in the South West of England we maintain a directory of around 100 LGBT+ grassroots organisations in the region and provide infrastructure support to them as needed.
  • Community Consultation – Intercom carries out community surveys, community consultations, community engagement projects and research; and reports on the findings.
