LE REFUGE BRUXELLES
Le Refuge Bruxelles is a Brussels-based shelter providing emergency accommodation and support for LGBTQIA+ people aged 18 to 25 who are excluded 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.
