Monty Moncrieff

Monty Moncrieff MBE is the Chief Executive of London Friend, a charity working to promote the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) people. London Friend is the oldest LGBT charity in the UK, providing extensive mental health support, including coming out groups and counselling, since 1972. The charity also manages Antidote, a specialist LGBT drug and alcohol service, which was the first in the UK to observe the rise of chemsex amongst gay and bisexual men, and has developed innovative responses to changing service user need, taking an integrated approach to substance misuse, sexual and mental health. Their work in this field won a GSK IMPACT Award in 2016, and London Friend's 120-strong volunteers won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service. Monty was awarded an MBE in 2018 for services to LGBT equality. Prior to London Friend Monty has worked as a volunteer in the LGBT and substance misuse sectors for over 20 years, including managing a national programme of LGBT equality for the Department of Health. He has been listed in the Independent on Sunday's Rainbow List of influential LGBT people three times. Outside of work he's mildly obsessed with the Eurovision Song Contest.
