LE REFUGE BRUXELLES
Le Refuge Bruxelles is a Brussels-based shelter providing emergency accommodation and support for LGBTQI+ people aged 18 to 25 who are in a situation of exclusion on account of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Emergency accommodation at Le Refuge lasts for a maximum of three months, during which time we offer multidimensional support including administrative, legal and social support; access to physical and mental health care; organisation of socio-cultural activities; help in finding accommodation; and help in finding a job, training or further education.
YOU ARE SEEKING FOR HELP
Whether you are in a situation of emergency, need help or have a question, we are at your disposal.
YOU ARE SEEKING TO HELP
The needs of the young people we accommodate and support are manifold. Help us to keep our shelter alive.

Le Refuge Bruxelles gathers motivated volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. What do they have in common? The desire to fight against discrimination and exclusion of young LGBTQI+ people.
