London Friend

London Friend (2022)

Established in 1972 London Friend is the UK’s oldest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans charity. We’re here to support the health and mental well-being of the LGBT community in and around London.

We offer counselling and support around issues such as same-sex relationships, sexual and gender identity and promoting personal growth and self-confidence. We’re also home to Antidote – the UK’s only LGBT drug and alcohol service, and provide specialist domestic abuse counselling as part of the London LGBT Domestic Abuse Partnership.

Our social groups provide a safe space to meet and socialise as an alternative to the bar and club scene. We provide HIV prevention and community sexual health support across several London Boroughs, and work in partnership with sexual health clinics and local drug and alcohol services.

Our professional services include training and consultancy on LGBT issues and the health and wellbeing issues affecting our service users.
