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, but in the interim period we're running a Virtual LGBT+ Centre. Details of upcoming events with how to book can be found here.

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.

DATE STONE DONOR OPPORTUNITY

LGBT+ Centre ‘date stone’

During 2020-2021, Europe’s only purpose-built LGBT+ Community Centre will be demolished and rebuilt. We are offering a very special, one-off donor opportunity for this landmark building. We are offering a unique opportunity for an individual or company to become our date stone donor. Unlike our individual and corporate bricks, there is only one date stone.

Your gift will help rebuild Manchester’s LGBT+ Centre so that current and future generations can benefit from the love, care and support that the LGBT+ Centre offers.

Lifesaving and life enhancing, the new three-storey LGBT+ Centre will support over 50,000 people each year, including those with addictions, fleeing from abuse, those at risk of homelessness and many people who suffer from acute loneliness.

Donor opportunity

We are inviting one of our most valued supporters to become our date stone donor. Carved from Welsh slate and weighing 30kg, this unique stone will be lovingly commissioned by a master stone mason and artist, Lucy Cortese.

Cost:

£5,000 inclusive of VAT. New Economy calculates that for every £1 invested in us we generate £4 of social value. So your £5,000 donation will generate £20,000!

Donor benefits:

  1. A dedicated space within the new Centre with you or your company’s name in perpetuity, and on our website
  2. A special logo to use on your website and marketing materials to showcase your support
  3. A digital thank you via our social media channels
  4. A unique piece of art from our stone mason, Lucy Cortese
  5. A printed certificate, which we will post to you
  6. Invitation to visit the new Centre once it’s built

We are also asking individuals and companies in the region to buy bricks to help us to rebuild our Centre.

We are in desperate need of your support to rebuild the LGBT+ Centre in Manchester, which is in a serious state of disrepair.

We want to triple the size of our space so that we can save 40,000 more young lives each year.

Your gift will help rebuild Manchester’s LGBT+ Centre so that current and future generations can benefit from the love, care and support that the LGBT+ Centre offers.
