Setting Up an LGBT Youth Group

Whether you are a youth worker, a member of the LGBT community, a parent or a teacher, you may have researched your area, and realised that there is no LGBT+ youth group support for young people locally.

Planning a Parent's Event

Holding scheduled events for the parents, carers and friends of LGBT+ young people can prove to be a very rewarding experience for all involved. Parents, carers and friends are able to ask questions, and demystify what LGBT+ youth provisions offer and do, and LGBT+ young people feel better supported, and often empowered from the events.
