COVID-19 closure

Due to the rapidly changing environment around COVID-19 and to ensure the health & wellbeing of our service users, staff and the broader community, we have made the decision to close face to face services including Drop InOut West and Social Saturday until further notice.

We’ll update the website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) as the situation evolves.

What happens?

Social Saturdays is a safe*, inclusive and relaxed space for LGBTIQA+ folks, where you can be yourself and meet new people, join in a game or activity, or simply hang out and socialise.

The group is facilitated by trained volunteers and the format is informal with some planned activities and some unstructured social time too.
