Our advice surgeries are a vital part of what we do as an organisation; we provide a safe space for a range of advice surgeries provided by solicitors, police and others.
LGB&T Legal Advice Surgey
The Lesbian & Gay Foundation have teamed up with a gay friendly legal firm to provide a fortnightly advice surgery for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in the city.
Our service, in partnership with legal firm O’Neill Patient LLP, is for the gay community providing information on legal advice following recent changes in the law such as Equal Marriage, Civil Partnerships and the Sexual Orientation Regulations amendment to The Goods & Services Act.
The service operates every second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 6pm until 8pm from the LGF in Manchester’s gay village. No appointment is necessary. For more info, please contact us on 0845 3 30 30 30 from 10am-10pm every day.
LGB&T Police Advice Surgey
The long established Police Drop-in Surgery at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation is held every Thursday evening.
Greater Manchester Police have for many years been providing a support service to the LGBT community in Manchester and have committed to providing a regular weekly service at the home of LGF.
GMP Community PCs and Support Officers will be available every Thursday to help with any issues at all that the LGBT community think the police can help with. Issues such as hate crime, domestic violence, bullying, nuisance neighbours, homophobia etc are all areas that this service is designed to specifically deal with.
If you have traditionally felt uneasy about calling the police or asking for their support in the past, the Drop-In Service at the LGF is here to help you.
The police advice surgery is held every Thursday evening between 6pm and 8pm at The Lesbian & Gay Foundation, Number 5, Richmond Street, Manchester M1 3HF. No appointment is necessary just come along on the night.
For more information, call us on 0845 3 30 30 30 from 10am-10pm every day.
