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.


Emily Crompton

Emily is a keen cyclist and feminist. On becoming a ‘Friend’ Emily told us “throughout my time at uni I always said I would give to charity when I had a job and a wage, but didn’t want to give money to a huge charity who would send me shiny leaflets through my door about the work they are doing with donations – Really I wanted to give to a cause that was local to me, where I can see the difference donations are making. This is why I chose to become a Friend. I am so happy that the centre exists for all the groups that meet there an use the centre but especially for the young people in LYGM. When I came out I was older and confident and had wonderful open minded friends and family, but I can imagine that if you are from a smaller community/ one that is not so open minded and welcoming then coming out would be much more of a challenge and no one should have to hide who they love if they don’t want to! I support all of the services that you offer for people, young and old, under your tin roof and hope I can help by donating each month!”
