Gay Advice Darlington/Durham (GADD) was an advice service for LGBT people in the Darlington and Durham area. It was a volunteer service, run and staffed by trained volunteers and professional staff.[1]

It was founded in September 1995 by a group of gay men in the South Durham area, following the closure of a gay-related unit within the South Durham Health Promotion Unit.[2]

The chair of the organisation until his death in 2010 was Neil Bright.[3]

GADD closed in April 2017 following withdrawal of a grant from Darlington Borough Council.[4]

The Chief Executive of GADD for its last eight years was Emma Roebuck, who went on to found QuerKey CIC.[5]
