IRIS – International Rainbow Inclusion Service

Dementia SupportIRIS, or International Rainbow Inclusion Service, is a free service for LGBTQ+ refugees, asylum seekers and migrants and those questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity.

Set up in December 2023 by Switchboard and fellow Brighton-based organisation Conversation Over Borders, it offers friendly, discreet, weekly social groups and one-to-one social prescribing support.

The aim is to support LGBTQ+ newcomers to the UK to help them adjust to their new surroundings, which may feel intimidating and difficult to navigate.
