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.

LGBT Young People’s Health in the UK: A literature review with a focus on needs, barriers and practice (2016)


We have worked with the NHS to assess the health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people in the UK. Published in 2016, this document highlights the importance of the need to recognise the existence of homo/bi/transphobia across health services and the impact this may have on LGBT young people accessing the services that they need.


More Than A Youth Project (2015)

How You Can Help Us (2014)


Undertaken in 2014, this focused piece of research explores the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people when “coming out” to adults. The resulting report highlights positive responses that young people have had from adults during this process, and other responses that weren’t that helpful.
