ReachOUT is a support and advocacy charity for LGBTI refugees and asylum seekers in the UK.

It provides a community to reach out to those who have had to flee their home countries because of the fear of physical or structural violence and discrimination directed towards them because of their sexual and/or gender identities. ReachOUT is also for organisations, agencies and friends of the LGBT or refugee services community who seek to further their understanding of the issues faced by this group.[1]

Meetings are held twice a month in central Leeds. The purpose of the group is to create a safe space for LGBTI refugees and asylum seekers to come and make friends, develop a sense of community and boost confidence by learning new skills through capacity building activities.
