Peer Support & Social Groups

Outhouse organises and/or hosts a number of Peer Support Groups that meet regularly at the Centre. They aim to provide a safe, supportive and confidential space where our service users can explore their issues and gain confidence in the knowledge that they are in a safe space with like-minded others

Sapphic Social

Meets every Friday from  6:30pm to 8:30pm
Coffee and chats for LBTQ+ Women and non-binary folk.
"Sapphic" is an identity term or label generally used to describe women's attraction to other women. It's an umbrella term for lesbians, bisexual/ pansexual women, and queer women. It's almost used as a synonym for "WLW" or "women who love women". However, the term "sapphic" is actually much more expansive than this.

Men's Night

Meets Fridays from 7 to 9 pm.
If you are a gay man of any age who wants to meet new people and socialise over a cup of tea or coffee, this is the perfect group for you. Meetings are run at Outhouse Cafe, and you don't need to subscribe.
