About Southwark LGBT Network

Southwark LGBT Forum was set up in 1995 to address homophobic hate crime, and its partner organisation Southwark LGBT Network was set up in 2002 to create social networks and activities, and respond to the needs of the community. The two organisations were combined in 2017.

The Network is established particularly for the benefit of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people in need in Southwark, to preserve and protect health, relieve poverty and distress and to educate the wider public of these issues as they affect the LGBT community. To work in close collaboration with voluntary and community organisations, other groups in the community and the statutory sector where their aims are consistent with the aims of the network.
