Community Organisation Award: LGBT


Founded in 2014, Spiritual Lesbians and Wellbeing are a community support group for gay women, providing safe spaces to make new friends and take part in spiritual/self-development and wellbeing-based activities. The group is voluntary led by a small team supported by member donations and was born out of a desire to offer alternative Meetups outside of bars and nightclubs. It is clear that Spiritual Lesbians and Wellbeing have put a lot of energy into adapting and supporting the needs of members with virtual meetings and events, with an additional focus on mental health. They have visited Glastonbury, arranged various trips to festivals, retreats and created Veggie Socials – a relaxed way to socialise through London’s vegetarian restaurants. The overall purpose of this community group is to help gay women feel less isolated, and this goal has certainly been achieved with many lasting friendships being formed over the years.
