Groups for Parents and Carers
The Proud Trust is a youth organisation and we primarily work with LGBT+ young people. However, we recognise that the parents and carers of LGBT+ young people may need some advice, information or support. Below you can find the details of some organisations that can support you.
Manchester Parents Group
Manchester Parents Group supports the families and friends of LGBT+ people. This voluntary organisation is run by parents of LGBT+ people and so they understand the confusion and questions you may have and can help you with them. They meet once a month in Central Manchester but can arrange one-to-one meetings if that is preferable.
