13+ Youth Groups

We will arrange a meeting with young people before you attend our LGBT*Q+ Youth Groups.

Having a meeting with you enable us to get to know you, for you to meet us and for us to understand how Outreach youth can best help and support you.

We will also share our safeguarding procedures, our group expectations and you will have the chance to ask any questions you have about what happens at our LGBT*Q+ Youth Groups.

To arrange a meeting contact us here

Here are our LGBT*Q+ Youth Group dates and programmes.
