Hart Gables works to promote equality and diversity, advance education, eliminate discrimination in relation to LGBT people, and raise awareness of LGBT issues. It provides information, advice, support, one-to-one and group sessions, a hate crime service and a drop-in for people in the Hartlepool area.

The Foundation has offered two years’ funding totalling £4,800 towards costs associated with a sessional worker supporting people who are Transgender. This role is also involved with training and running awareness sessions around Transgender issues and is currently funded for five hours a week.
