Carrey Friend Isle of Man Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Info is a voluntary organisation and registered charity which between January 1991 and August 2002 operated a phone line service for three hours one evening each week. In that time it took over 2,500 calls offering a befriending, support and information service. Calls fell in number and it was difficult to recruit, train and keep volunteers. This web site was established in May 2000. In its first 8 months it had nearly 1,000 hits. In 2001 it had over 2,500. Since then hits have increased steadily and we are now running at about 5,000 hits per year. The forums were established in 2003. They have proved popular with many thousands of visits each year.
There are now a number of resources operating under our umbrella such as the walking group and Police support drop-in.
Now that we do not have to rely on premises and telephone lines it is much easier and far less labour intensive to provide a satisfactory level of service to the local gay community.
We would of course welcome on board any volunteers who would be willing
to raise funds, run events or who could provide web design skills or help with moderating
There is no dedicated gay venue. We are trying to reinstate monthly nights.
