Check out Time Out York!
TIME OUT YORK aims to help LGBTQI refugees and asylum seekers by offering TimeOut: visits to Yorkshire towns/cities and homestay - safe time, safe places.
TIME OUT YORK works with support groups and reception centres within an easy radius of York to identify – as discretely as necessary in each case – lgbti asylum seekers in our region. It is linked to York City of SANCTUARY in terms of objectives and vetting of volunteers. To date, TIME OUT YORK offers the following:
• visits to York / coast / and countryside - a day where individuals can take 'time Out' and perhaps put the label 'asylum seeker' aside for a short time, spending time in a safe environment
• longer homestays - for those who are able to come over for several days / these visits are in liaison with lgbt or refugee centres
• friending - under clear guidelines - where some of the avoidable stresses of their temporary situation can be dealt with.
All those directly involved in Time Out York have experience in the caring professions, though not all are lgbti. Each however, shares a commitment to dealing with the specific needs of this community and offers what they can: money, time, cooking, good humour and solid advice!
