Outcomers, the community organisation that offers support to the LGBT+ community in Louth and across the North East, has been awarded funding to the tune of €75,500 from the 2020 LGBTI+ Communities Services Fund.
Minister for Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth, Roderic O’Gorman TD, today announced the 29 projects around the country that will receive funding.
Minister O’Gorman said: “The LGBTI+ Communities Services Fund provides for initiatives that will promote inclusion, protect rights and improve quality of life and wellbeing for members of the LGBTI+ community, enabling them to participate fully in Ireland's social, economic, cultural, and political life.

“Services and initiatives that work to promote inclusion and visibility for the LGBTI+ community have an increased importance at a time when many LGBTI+ people may feel disconnected from their community. I am confident that these projects will be successful in ensuring members continue to feel supported into 2021.”
The 2020 LGBTI+ Community Services Funding Call is grounded by the vision, mission and values of the National LGBTI+ Inclusion Strategy 2019-2021. Its purpose is to help support Outcome 6 of the Strategy, that "community supports are more widely available to LGBTI+ people".
This call was open to applicant groups operating at national, regional and local level to support community services, and promote visibility and inclusion of LGBTI+ people.
