Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

The Proud Trust is now operating digitally, as we make significant changes to how we operate in this time of international concern.

All youth groups and 1-1s (face-to-face contact) are not running in their usual venues and are being delivered virtually instead.

Our LGBT+ Centre is closed, if you want to get in touch, contact us at

Our face to face training is also postponed, but some courses have moved virtual. Information on upcoming virtual training, can be found here.

Youth workers will be sending out Google Hangout links for our group work and 1-1 support. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We are still here for you and all LGBT+ young people.

Please share this with young people or colleagues where relevant.


Ashleigh Talbot

Ashleigh is the Proud Trust’s Social Action Coordinator, working on the Trans Team. After many years of involvement in Manchester’s LGBT charities, Ashleigh has taken on this role to try and press for real change for young people. In her spare time she is a musician and artist, and is described by her girlfriend as a “chaotic lesbian witch”, but she’s not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
