What Others Say About Us ….

We get lots of positive comments from young people, their parents and the professionals we work with.
Here are some of the recent comments we have received:

“It’s a safe environment where I’m free from the judgement of other people and I feel like I confidently talk about my problems and get a serious answer”

“It’s nice to be able to talk to people in similar positions.”

“For me it’s the only time I ever leave and socialise if I don’t go I rarely leave my house also because I am not currently at school.”

“Outreach has helped my mental health a lot.”

“I think outreach is good for me because it actually made me realise my pansexuality. It’s just a comfortable space for getting people who are getting to grips with this kind of thing, and it’s probably what it did for me most.”

“I came from a really homophobic/transphobic family, if I don’t have outreach I don’t have anywhere when I can truly be respected and feel like myself, outreach has helped my though what has been a very bad year, its one space where I’ve felt safe and protected.”

“I just think being in a community like this is really beneficial to be honest.”

“Going has 100% helped my mental health honestly, still not great but much better than before I started going.”

“Being able to go to outreach gives me hope and something I can look forwards to, it’s something I miss from the moment I leave, outreach is the one place I can go to be somewhere I feel safe, it’s the one place where I don’t have to be scared to be myself.”

“Its amazing I’ve seen such a change in them since they started at Outreach – more confident and less isolated – thank you”

“What a fantastic project for young LGBTQ people to meet together and be themselves – H looks forward to it each fortnight – its help us build a stronger relationship as they are happier and less stressed.”

“I hope you go on forever – so you can keep helping LGBT young people be who they really are and have the confidence to be that in their lives outside of Outreach.”

“Without you I’m not sure my child would have made it through, I’m eternally grateful …….. they needed a supportive space to know unconditional acceptance genuinely existed!”

“I have just met with parents that were singing your praises so I wanted to let you know that as a charity you are doing a great job.” (Partner Organisation)l”

“J came back and said how good it had been at your session and how they couldn’t wait for the next – thank you” (Social Worker)

“fantastic workshop by the young people – their sharing of their stories and experiences was very powerful” (Teacher)

“we often hear from young people & professionals of the difference they (OY) make and they support families. What’s more, they’re a really good bunch. (Partner Organisation)l”
