Outhouse East

Centre Refurbishment

We own a building in the heart of Colchester that is used as a safe place to meet and for peer support by the whole Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community. The building is in need of some structural repairs and a general 'spruce up'. We have a team of volunteers who can unmertake some of this work but require funding for some of the structural repairs and maintenance.
