Ellen Gee FoundationA British social policy and research body dedicated to:
- researching the experiences of lesbians and gay men in relation to a range of social policy issues;
- highlighting where discrimination and disadvantage occur;
- identifying gaps in knowledge and provision;
- promoting a social policy agenda that addresses these needs.
Established by a group of lesbians and gay men with experience of working on these issues as service providers, researchers and funders, with aims to address the lack of information available to policy makers, mainstream service providers and funders about the needs of lesbians and gay men.
Among their aims :
facilitate access to statutory and non-statutory providers of funding and related assistance;
And among their founders :

UPDATE - if this (the Diana Memorial Fund's announcement of a £3K grant for a launch conference) is correct the Ellen Gee Foundation was at the time actually BASED c/o Comic Relief.
