LESBIAN, gay, bisexual and transsexual residents in the Sidmouth area, who feel "isolated", can take advantage of a new web-service.

The LGBT Collective has been launched to introduce communities across the region, including the elderly, to a range of resources available to them.

The site, www.lgbtcollective.org.uk, has a directory of groups and projects across the South West, an events diary and local LGBT news.

The 'first of its kind' resource has been funded by the Big Lottery.

Paul Roberts, community development manager said: "We hope that by promoting this information, isolated LGBT people will find out there are resources in Devon for them. For example, the Rainbow Roofs group is looking at housing needs of older LGBT people and always wants to hear from new people.
