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, but in the interim period we're running a Virtual LGBT+ Centre. Details of upcoming events with how to book can be found here.
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.
