The aims of our company are to raise awareness of the issues facing the LGBTQU+ community and promote Crawley as a safe place for members of the community. We also want to create a sense of belonging and identity for the LGBTQU+ community in Crawley. This will be done through planning and managing annual events and supporting developments of services for the LGBTQU+ community in Crawley.
We are looking for volunteers!
Meet the Team
Vincent: Co-Director, Manager
Identifying as part of the LGBT+ community and having lived in Crawley most of my life, I have a demographic understanding of the challenges faced by members of Crawley's LGBTQU+ community. I am honoured to be managing director of this incredibly important organisation and look forward to making a difference in our town.
Julie: Co-Director, Inclusion Training Lead
Growing up when I was at school there was no support for the LGBT community, I knew so many people that needed support. I’m so pleased that I can support so many people in so many different ways.
Ben: Co-Director, Helpline Lead
Having moved back to Crawley after finishing university it was so good to see this group forming, and now to be a part of it! I can't wait to celebrate the diversity of our town and create a safe and supportive place for people in the LGBTQU+ community.
Eva: Multi-Faith Space Lead
I've lived in Crawley my whole life and there has never been a local dedicated group for the LGBTQU+ Community. Being a person of faith and bisexual, I am ecstatic to be a part of CrawleyLGBTQU+!
Kaiden: Trans Social Lead
Growing up in Crawley, I am so happy there is now an LGBTQU+ group who are all about inclusion and support. I am proud to be a part of not only Crawley LGBTQU+, but to lead the Trans Social too. Being Trans myself, I understand the importance of feeling accepted and I look forward to connecting with other people within the community.
Hollie: Schools Lead
I'm excited to have a positive impact on the lives of LGBTQU+ children and young people, by working with schools and colleges in Crawley and the surrounding areas through helping them build a more inclusive environment.
