We have always aimed to break down barriers to accessing health services, reduce isolation, stigma and discrimination, and encourage or enable LGB&T people from diverse backgrounds to share in the life of the whole community. And we enjoy focusing on community led/inspired projects so feel free to share your ideas by contacting us at or view our staff/volunteer roles and become part of the team! Volunteering (

We believe that by providing a wide range of services, people are able to make more informed choices about their overall health and wellbeing and therefore TRADE follows the ethos of SEX.LOVE.LIFE.

Sex – Physical acts of sex,  supplying people with the knowledge that enables them to make informed choices that (empowers/allows) them to have the best sex with the least harm.

Love – Mental health, how someone feelings about themselves could influence the risks they may that could affect their health wellbeing.

Life – Social skills, being a part of community and how to navigate within the world and LGB&T spaces. Empowering people to advocate for themselves by communicating consent, setting and enforcing boundaries.
