How we can support you

The North Somerset LGBT+ Forum runs social groups, events and drop-ins for our local communities, and details of these can be found by reading our Newsletters or following our social media platforms. We aim to provide members of our community with safe spaces to connect with others, reduce isolation, build confidence and meet new people.

The North Somerset LGBT+ Forum is not an emergency or crisis support service, and we are unable to provide advice relating to mental health, medical issues or legal matters. We recognise however that there may be times when members of our community need support, so we recommend accessing the following external services:

External Services

Mental Health

  • If you or someone else is in danger, call 999 or go to A&E now

  • If you need help urgently for your mental health, but it's not an emergency, get help from NHS 111 online or call 111

Your mental health is as important as your physical health. You will not be wasting anyone's time.

If you require non-emergency support for your mental health, the following services are available:

  • Samaritans: 116 123 (open all year 24/7)  

  • Bristol Mindline: 0808 808 0330
