Micro Rainbow provides safe housing, social inclusion activities and moving on support to LGBTI asylum seekers in the London area. In August 2018 we expanded our service provision and we are excited to also be providing safe housing to LGBTI asylum seekers located in the West Midlands.

Micro Rainbow runs three safe homes in the West Midlands and has 12 single rooms that are available exclusively for vulnerable LGBTI asylum seekers.

In addition to providing temporary, safe accommodation, we also offer support to LGBTI refugees to:

  • improve their employability
  • access Universal Credit
  • apply for National Insurance (NI) numbers.

If you are:

  • a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or intersex (LGBTI) asylum seeker or refugee and
  • homeless, in need of housing or moving on support and
  • based in the West Midlands

it is highly likely that we can support you, so contact us! To access support, you can call our helpline or meet us face to face.
