COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR LGBT –
After realizing that there was no provision for transgender or non-binary people in Cornwall, Safe Haven was founded in 2015 to deliver a host of dynamic events for the transgender community. Safe Haven has an ideal location to provide a safe, supportive environment for people to come out and meet others in similar situations. The space also allows people to explore who they are, where their journey is going, how much their gender variance affects their day to day lives, how dysphoric they feel and how to proceed. This phenomenal organisation facilitate a 24/7 helpline and run three very successful support groups; a weekly group for trans and non-binary people and 2 fortnightly groups for Trans Teens, and the parents, partners and families of trans people. Safe Haven has given a lifeline to many who are suffering depression and isolation, changing the lives of over 300 people to date.
