About Building Safe Choices

The content of this web site is based on Stonewall Housing’s Building Safe Choices feasibility report, which can be downloaded here.

The report was authored by Julia Shelley, who has over 25 years experience in Third Sector organisations working with older people, carers and the LGBT community in the areas of community, social care and housing.

The report was funded by the Big Lottery and Commonweal Housing.
