There are more than 100,000 older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and / or Transgender people living in London. Many are socially isolated, cut off from family and friends and not in contact with appropriate services.
As an organisation responsible for raising our own funds, we need your financial support to help us in continuing our work with older LGBT people in London.
Please give whatever you can to support the project. We need your help to continue this vital work.

Regular donations (Standing Orders) and cheques
You can donate directly to us by downloading and completing the standing order form which should then be returned to us using the contact details below. Please note that any cheques should be made out to Age UK Camden. Monies raised will be allocated to Opening Doors London. A regular donation (however small) by standing order allows us to be flexible and spend the money where it is most needed, when we need it, e.g. the weekly lunch club, regular film nights or the befriending service. A Gift Aid declaration is included on the form.
In addition to Opening Doors London own fundraising events, we encourage people to hold their own events to raise money for us. In the past we’ve received generous donations from events as diverse as pub quizzes, raffles, and coffee mornings. How about arranging a ‘Come Dine with Me’ event and charging participants?
Please contact us if you’d like to hold an event to raise money for us and we’d be delighted to offer advice and support where we can.
Thanks for all your help and support.
