Stonewall Housing is a leading national charity that was established in 1983. It has a
long history of working to ensure that LGBTQ+ people have access to safe and
They provide support services, advice and advocacy, and they
develop and run supported housing and housing schemes which are LGBTQ+ inclusive.
We are confident that this partnership will help us to continue to make a positive
impact in the lives of LGBTQ+ individuals and contribute to a more inclusive and
accepting society for all.
Steven McIntyre, CEO of Stonewall Housing said :
"I am committed to working with HouseProud and the Pledge Partners to ensure that
we are providing the best possible service for LGBTQ+ residents. I believe that
meaningful engagement with LGBTQ+ residents is key to ensuring that we are meeting
their needs and addressing any issues that may arise. I look forward to continuing this
work with all of you."
All existing Pledge Partners will be contacted by Stonewall Housing in coming weeks
for formal introductions and to review current pledge status, with a view to
continuing to champion LGBTQ+ inclusion for 2023 and beyond.
We are excited about this new chapter and look forward to working with Stonewall
