London Pride 2017

We are here to support you

We are here to help you and your family resolve challenges linked to sexuality, gender identity, religion and culture. We are a small volunteer-led charity with limited resources, but we will do everything we can to support or guide you.

We treat every request individually and the support we are able offer is assessed on a case by case basis.

Recent testimonials

To help you understand the support we provide, here are a few recent comments from LGBTQ+ individuals, from religious and culturally conservative families, who have used our support services.

Two weeks prior to getting into contact with the Naz & Matt foundation, I was hospitalised and was not able to see past anything apart from not wanting to live anymore. By simply listening to, validating and understanding my situation I now have all that I was longing for, a clear plan to eventually live safely and without fear.

I feel like a brand new person every time we speak, eager to put newfound insight and knowledge to practice. I feel super confident in preparing for the rest of my life going forward! I will forever be eternally grateful.

I had no idea 5 years ago when using the Naz & Matt foundation as research for my A Level media coursework that it would one day change my life for the better.

I jumped, hoping someone would help… and you caught me. Thank you.

A recent comment from an LGBTQ+ person we are supporting

The charity is a god send and is still supporting me. I was in a very bad way a year ago and living in so much fear. Finally I was supported to move, very far, to feel safe and secure. Naz and Matt helped us to get into a refuge for me and my kids. I had nothing and they gave us so much by doing this for me and my kids.

My life has changed so much cause of them. I have things I never dreamt of and am so happy cause of the charity.
