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, and our training is being postponed or moving virtual.

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.




This is a collaborative network supported by The Proud Trust and created by LGBT+ youth workers of colour in Manchester, Bradford and London. The network provides a space to collaborate to meet the needs and provide opportunities for LGBT+ young people of colour, and support for youth workers who are LGBT+ people of colour.

Who is it for?

This network is for LGBT+ youth workers of colour. The work also engages with and supports the work of youth workers or volunteers working with LGBT+ young people of colour.

Joining this network brings you:

  • A quarterly meeting, which people can join in person (moves around the country), or virtually, using Google Hangouts;
  • The opportunity to problem-solve, learn and share with other workers doing similar work;
  • Opportunity for you and your young people to attend the national COLOURS festival;
  • A network of peer support from other LGBT+ youth workers of colour;
  • Access to residential weekends for your LGBT+ young people of colour.

For more information contact chloe.cousins@theproudtrust.org.

The COLOURS Network meetings are closed to youth workers who identify as LGBT+ people of colour only. There will be additional opportunities across the year for youth workers who are not LGBT+ people of colour to engage with the network meetings.
