We've got some really terrific developments at Intercom.
Bye-bye Andy, Hello Andy! Andy
has...become Deputy Director and moved across the corridor! He is no longer taking on casework,
though he will continue to supervise the Help Support and Advocacy team.
His main role is now strategic working across the entire South West,
- our Strategic Mental Health Project (taking Miranda's work forward)
- and also our new Phobic Crime Reporting project
with local LGB and Trans communities, working in partnership with
police, local government, the CPS etc.
Bye-bye Lizzie, Hello Lizzie!
Lizzie is now moving on too! From being our Helpline Listener and
Administrator Lizzie is moving into direct Devon casework, providing
face-to-face help for LGB and Trans people. In other words, she's more
or less doing Andy's old job!
And welcome... (guess who)!
We've recruited a new member of the team who will be arriving at the end
of the month to run the Helpline, now that Lizzie is moving on. Watch this space!
But don't worry — normal service continues as usual!
During March the Helpline service will continue to be answered by
Jacqui in Bournemouth, or Lizzie in Exeter, or Steve in Redruth. Just ring the usual number, 0800 612 3010.

A new national LGBT project
We are delighted to be able to announce today that Intercom is one of
the lead agencies in a new national LGBT project funded by the Equality
and Human Rights Commission. The new project is aimed at improving LGB
and Trans people's access to help against homophobic, transphobic and
biphobic crime, and making it easier for us all to report phobic crime
when we meet it.
The lead agency is the national LGBT Consortium. The other agencies on the National Framework Group, with the
Consortium and Intercom, are GALOP and Metro in London, the Manchester
Lesbian and Gay Foundation, Yorkshire MESMAC, Unity Group Wales,
Leicester LGBT Centre, Stonewall Housing, Regard, Trans MediaWatch, and
Bi UK. We look forward to working with them all. We send our special
congratulations and thanks to Paul at the Consortium and Nik at Galop
for their immensely hard work setting up this national partnership and
developing the project proposal last year.
