Hi CHEDDYMAY and welcome.  Why don't you go to the Rainbow Families section of Gingerbeer - they talk about this kind of subject and you might get a quicker response there.  Best of luck.

Stonewall launches freephone number 08000 50 20 20

Stonewall launches brand new

Info Service

Free Infoline to serve gay and lesbian community

Stonewall has launched a freephone number – 08000 50 20 20 - to respond to questions callers have around gay, lesbian and bisexual issues. The new service, supported by the Big Lottery Fund, responds to a huge growth in demand for gay-specific advice and information about the status of lesbian and gay people.

Ben Summerskill, Stonewall Chief Executive, said: ‘Stonewall has successfully lobbied for major legal changes in recent years that benefit and protect lesbian and gay people in so many ways. This means the rights we enjoy today are very new and people often want to clarify where they stand. Further expanding our info service is part of Stonewall’s commitment to educate people around the new legal status of Britain’s 3.6 million gay people.’     

Information Officer Helen Ward, who runs the service, added: ‘We can also point you in the right direction for legal advice, and give out facts and guidance on all issues affecting lesbian and gay life – from civil partnerships and parenting to housing and health as well as everything in between. In addition, we’ll be able to refer callers to hundreds of other specialist and regional organisations who can help too.’

In 2007, Stonewall received more than 5,000 telephone enquiries and its website www.stonewall.org.uk  had 1.2 million visitors. Both figures represent a fourfold increase since 2002.

 ‘So whatever you need to know,’ said Helen Ward, ‘just call 08000 50 20 20 and we’ll point you in the right direction.’

08000 50 20 20 operates Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 5.30pm. You can also contact Stonewall’s Info Service at info@stonewall.org.uk

complements more than anything,

this number is in response to the fact that we were getting so many calls about rights (which switchboard bounce our way anyway) rather than case work/pastoral work which they specialise in

KnowPMDD is a UK-based community project with a difference. It helps improve the quality of life for women living with PMDD (extreme premenstrual symptoms). We won't tell you about "cures". We'll start from where you're at and work from there. We will believe you and help you solve problems in ways that work best for you

For more information go to: www.knowpmdd.org.uk

Or mail vita on: vita@knowpmdd.org.uk

I have just spoken to a friend who has been going to PACE for the last month or so and is raving about the service and feeling a lot calmer about life and things and getting help with housing issues also.

Just want to say, that I have been using this service for only around a week.  They have done more in that week for me than another service has done in nearly six months.  The advocacy rocks.

Bumping this thread in support of PACE whose advocate, after very hard work, determination, and knowledge has pushed the relevant authorities, to finally offer me a flat to move into to get me away from where I have been living for the past nine months which has been at times intolerable.     

She has only been my advocate since April but has done more in that time than I could have imagined or wished for.  Its been a hard old slog, but finally 'the dog with a bone' tactics have paid off.

I sign the new tenancy tomorrow and can move as soon as I want.   ;D

Thank you doesn't really come close or do justice.

 :)
