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.


Support Us

Many young people say their LGBT+ youth group has saved their life.

You can help a young person living in the North West stay safe and reach their potential. There are many ways you can support us:

Although the legal rights for people in the UK identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans have improved dramatically in recent years, changes in legislation can only go so far. Daily life for many LGBT+ people of all ages can be challenging, with discrimination and prejudice leading to poor mental and physical health, low confidence and isolation from mainstream society.

Young people questioning their sexual or gender identity can struggle to access the support they need; fearful of the potential consequences. Young people who have come out to family and friends may be facing bullying, abuse, familial rejection or violence.

Here at the Proud Trust we help young LGBT+ people to obtain support in a safe and welcoming environment: a place where they can be proud of who they are, explore their identity and make friends with other young people.
