Support to LGBT*Q+ young people and their families

We are able to offer support to young LGBT*Q+ people and their families – if you have a young person who thinks this would be useful for them – please ask them to complete the information form below and return it to us, we will then make contact with them – to arrange a ‘hello’ meeting.

OY-Young Peoples Information Form – May 23 

We welcome partnerships with schools and colleges that will improve the life experiences and chances for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer or Questioning young people.

We hope that schools will have identified the support and interventions that they feel would be appropriate to address the issues identified in their school/college. Schools and colleges will also be aware of the need for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer and Questioning identities and role models to be visible within the community as a method of challenging prejudice and stereotypes and raising aspirations.
