Opening Doors closure

Opening Doors, a charity launched in 2016 to support and advocate for LGBTQ+ individuals over 50, has announced its permanent closure on 29 February 2024.    

Bridget Symonds, CEO of Opening Doors, said:
“Despite the relentless efforts of our Board of Trustees and staff to secure a sustainable future for our work, the current economic environment has significantly impacted our funding sources, leaving us unable to continue.

As we prepare to cease operations, we are actively seeking alternative support networks for our members. Detailed information about these arrangements will be directly communicated to those affected.

We would encourage you to connect with Tonic Housing, Stonewall Housing, ELOP and Galop, who all do incredible work with our communities.”
