It is our belief that everyone should live in liberty. We are determined to help people find and sustain liberation by supporting them on a new life path through education, counselling and mentoring.
We looked at causes within our local community to ensure our efforts have a significant effect on individuals and independent programmes that are close to our heart.
For the duration of Pride 2020 - Saturday 27th June to Sunday 19th July - Liberty, For Life will be supporting The Outside Project, the UK’s first LGBTIQ+ homeless shelter and community centre. An independent, grassroots initiative, The Outside Project supports those within the LGBTIQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer) community who feel endangered, who are homeless or ‘hidden’ homeless and who fall outside of services due to historical and present prejudice in society and in their homes. The Outside Project has also opened a domestic abuse refuge for the LGBTIQ+ community in response to COVID-19.
Furthermore, Liberty are delighted to be working with Stonewall through its Diversity Champions programme, which supports to embed LGBT inclusivity across our organisation.
"We know that people perform better at work when they can be themselves, and that organisations like Liberty can be an important ally in the fight for equality for everyone"
The two small charities we have selected for the duration of 2020 are ‘1000 Women’, an important initiative to carry those women freed from slavery in the UK through to the next stage of their lives, led by The Sophie Hayes Foundation, and the House of St Barnabas, a private members club in Soho whose employment academy aims to break the cycle of homelessness.
Our staff, friends and customers will be a vital part of many fundraising activities and volunteering opportunities throughout the year which we will share with you as we progress.
We are giving you the opportunity to donate £1 with each sale online and in-store at any till point.
For the duration of Pride 2020 - Saturday 27th June to Sunday 19th July - 100% of the proceeds will go to The Outside Project.
Through you, our wonderful Liberty community, we aim to support those within the LGBTIQ+ community who feel endangered, who are homeless (or ‘hidden’ homeless) and who fall outside of services due to historical and present prejudice in society and in their homes.
