UK’s first LGBT+ retirement community given green light to open in 2021


Tonic Housing has been awarded a £5.7m loan from the mayor of London to purchase 19 properties in Vauxhall, Lambeth. This will become the UK‘s first provider of queer-affirming housing for older LGBT+ people. Sales for the property are due to start in the spring with residents expected to begin moving in this summer. Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, said he is proud to support Tonic in creating the UK’s first LGBT+ retirement community through the Greater London Authority’s Community Housing Fund. “London is an open, diverse, inclusive city, and I’m delighted to see these long-held plans come to fruition with the help of this loan and my community-led housing hub,” he said.
