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.


Training for Professionals

Any professional that works with children and young people, is working with children and young people that are, or will at some point realise that they are, LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related identities).

How well are these children and young people represented in your school, college or service?

How will their “coming out” experience be while under your care? We challenge you to create LGBT+ visible, positive, and inclusive primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and other youth settings.

All of our training is interactive and discussion based. This means that whatever your starting point, we are confident that you will take away practical and achievable LGBT+ inclusion ideas and actions that are appropriate for your staff, your communities, and of course, your children and young people.

We have designed training specifically for:

  • Primary Teachers
  • Secondary Teachers
  • College Lecturers
  • Youth Workers
  • BAME Youth and Community Workers
  • Faith Leaders
  • Support Staff
  • Foster Carers

“Your training this afternoon was brilliant! I really enjoyed it and took some great ideas away.”

Charlotte Hill, CEO UK Youth
