Groups for Parents and Carers

You can still browse our resources whilst you wait. A pop up chat window will appear once one of the Proud Connection team is available.

Why not explore our word of the day:


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.

Proud Connections: Parents & Carers

Proud Connections: Parents & Carers is an online peer support group for the parents and carers of LGBT+ young people, facilitated by experienced members of staff from The Proud Trust.

Meeting for five weekly sessions, the group is a safe and supportive space for parents and carers to ask questions, share experiences and receive specific support where needed. The sessions take place regularly throughout the year so if you would like a place or would like to talk about it before signing up, please contact The Proud Trust.

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.
