Donate to help us end religious and cultural homophobia

Help us make a positive difference – to stamp out homophobia caused by religious and cultural misinterpretation.

We welcome donations and sponsorship to help support the vital, life saving work that we do in the community.

In 2023 we received 382 requests for support from 173 individuals from religious and culturally conservative families, often experiencing abuse and threats against their life.

Support provided by our team over telephone and email included:

  • suicide prevention,
  • emergency relocation assistance,
  • coming out support,
  • support for parents,
  • asylum support,
  • emotional support,
  • emergency grants,
  • emergency accommodation,
  • mentoring and career advice,
  • a safe space and friendly listening service,

We also provided monthly group support to 292 individuals.

Naz and Matt Foundation is a registered UK charity with the UK Charity Commission. Registered charity number 1160694.

Money that we raise will help to fund a range of special projects and initiatives with the aim of changing attitudes and increasing acceptance of gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex young people born into religious families. It will help fund the support we provide to LGBTQI+ individuals from religious families, some who are forced to flee their family home when their family find out.
