Marriage equality

Love Equality is a campaign led by a consortium of organisations within Northern Ireland who are campaigning to for the introduction of legislation in Northern Ireland for equal civil marriage for same sex couples.




The Rainbow Project couldn’t carry out its work without the help of our amazing team of volunteers. We have a strong volunteering ethos and seek to create opportunities for people to contribute to our overall organisational aims and objectives.




Fundraising is an important part of allowing The Rainbow Project to continue to provide the services we do. As Northern Ireland's foremost LGB&/T Charity, we rely on support from people like you to allow us to help and support the most vulnerable in our community.
