Who is this service for? 

Our community safety team is for anyone who needs some help, support, or signposting in a tough time. 

Whether you’ve been a victim of crime or need some advice in a difficult situation, we can try to get you the right support from the right people in a number ways. It might be through our legal surgery, it might be through Coffee with a Cop, or it might just be pointing you in the right direction.  

How we can help you

Our Village Angels are a group of volunteers patrolling the streets of Manchester on a weekend to keep you safe; find outmore about the project and the iconic pink high vis!

It’s sad that the LGBTQ+ community still faces prejudice in everyday life; we have advice available if you’ve been a victim of hate crime, or if you’ve witnessed one. We’re also a third party hate crime reporting centre so we can support in reporting a hate crime or hate incident. 

Alongside Greater Manchester Police we want to make sure that our community are able to easily and safely discuss their problems with an officer who is knowledgeable and sympathetic to the challenges our community can face. This drop-in service runs once a month as part of our super saturday, but get in touch if you can’t make it and we might still be able to help. 

We work with a number of Solicitors to make sure that our service users get the best possible advice for their situation. We can arrange a free 30 minute call to advise you on your situation, and what your options are going forward.

We’re gathering the best advice and FAQs we can about the situations people in our community face so that we can work through those challenges together. Take a look and see what’s helpful for your situation.
