Outhouse: Request For Proposals - Strategic Plan 2023-2027


Request For Proposals - Strategic Plan 2023-2027

Founded in 1997, Outhouse is the LGBT+ community resource centre in Dublin. Our vision is of a vibrant and safe space for LGBT+ people, groups, and organisations that are inclusive of the diversity of our communities.

Our mission is to provide a safe space that facilitates and encourages the growth of services and supports the LGBT+ communities.

We are guided by community, equality, and partnership principles in all of our work.

Before the pandemic, approximately 55,000 people per year access our services that, include;

  • a drop-in service;
  • sexual health drop-in clinic;
  • personal development courses;
  • peer support groups;
  • a community café;
  • Ireland's only queer library & theatre;
  • office & multi-purpose meeting rooms for hire;
  • information, referral & support services;
  • outreach & training;
  • activities & events.

Outhouse is requesting support to develop a new 5-year strategic plan. We believe now is the time to take a step back and ensure that we serve our current and future clients and the wider LGBT+ community in the most effective way possible. Along with deciding on the future goals and activities of the organisation, we want to ensure that we have the organisation and the operating model and funding model to deliver the programmes, align the sector around common goals, and remain open to using partnerships to deliver our programmes.
