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 centre@theproudtrust.org

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.

Saturday tuck shop (May 9, 2017)
The Proud Trust have been running a tuck shop at the Saturday youth group thanks to a kind donation from Swizels Matlow.
The tuck shop has provided the young people with an opportunity to have first hand experience of running a small enterprise. The group have have developed skills in budgeting, marketing, customer care skills, and business planning.
These skills have helped some individuals to have a role in the group, feel more confident interacting with others and work experience for future employment opportunities
