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.


Trans Information

If you think you might be trans… don’t panic!

“Trans” is an umbrella term used to describe someone whose gender identity does not align or “match’” with the sex and gender role they were assigned at birth by society. For example, when you are born, people might assume you are male and will grow up to be a man, but you may identify as a woman, as gender neutral, or as something else entirely.

The pages in this trans information section will help you, as will the info about coming out and the feeling stressed /depressed page – and if you need support, remember you can also contact us, join one of our youth groups, find your nearest trans youth group through the National Trans Youth Network, or contact national support such as the Samaritans or Childline.
