METRO is a leading equality & diversity charity, providing health, community & youth services across London & the South East & national & international projects.

METRO promotes health, wellbeing, equality & participation through youth services, mental health & wellbeing services, sexual & reproductive health & HIV servicesand community participation & involvement.

METRO works with anyone experiencing issues related to gender, sexuality, diversity or identity.

METRO was established 1984 in response to the development of the Greater London Council's Lesbian & Gay Charter, Changing the World.

Originally operating under the name The Greenwich Lesbian and Gay Centre and providing telephone advice and support groups, the charity broadened its remit in 1994, working in partnership with statutory and voluntary organisations serving lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT)people and those questioning their sexuality.

Over the next decade and beyond, METRO has extended its services beyond Greenwich, and across South East London, until eventually it began working not only across the wholeof London, but nationally and internationally.

In early 2008, the membership of METRO agreed to amend its Constitution to provide services to all people experiencing issues related to sexuality, identity, gender and diversity.

From its inception, METRO has taken a holistic approach to lesbian, gay bisexual and transgendered health and well-being and continues to acknowledge that our ability to createsupportive environments for LGBT people depends not only on our strengths as an organisation, but also on our capacity to build alliances and partnerships that empower all people who confront discrimination because of their sexuality, gender, identity or HIV status.

In recent years we have developed a range of services and that support African people and communities affected by HIV consolidated and expanded since our merger with Harbour Trust in December 2010.
