LGBT Home Free
Our project LGBT Home Free has been developed to support some of the UKs most vulnerable and marginalised LGBT+ people who are on their journey to seek asylum.
In the space of 12 months over 20 LGBT+ people who are seeking asylum in the area have accessed Hart Gables for support.
In that time this inspirational community have been instrumental in creating a resource that aims to help others who are LGBT+ and seeking asylum in Middlesbrough.

Top Tips from Trans Teens
Top Tips from Trans Teens’ is a project funded by Children in Need, coordinated by Hart Gables, and designed and developed by the young people of Teesside who identify as transgender+ and/or non-binary.
The first and most important aim of the project is to increase the confidence and happiness in young people who identify as transgender+ and/or non-binary. To ensure this is achieved Hart Gables provided a safe space for young people to make friends, share their experience and have their voices heard. The young people used their time together to influence change by designing and developing this resource, aimed to help teachers, parents and professionals, ‘get it right’.
To create a resource that directly meets the needs of its target audience, the young people consulted with local teachers, parents and professionals to discover exactly what they wanted to know about trans+ and non-binary identity.

Any Relationship can be Abusive
Regardless of gender or sexual orientation, abuse is not acceptable in any relationship.
In a bid to highlight this message and challenge the narrative that abuse only happens in heterosexual relationships and that mainstream DA services are only for heterosexual people, the LGBT Tees Valley Forum have worked together to develop the poster campaign, ‘any relationship can be abusive’.
