LGBT Support and Groups on-line...

As of May 2020, we’ve made the move to using Discord as our primary digital youth work space. We had aimed to launch later in 2020, but we brought it forward in response to the lockdown. Discord provides a seamless, secure and engaging environment for young people to connect with each other and their youth workers. Youth groups now run in private channels for their members while general channels are available to all young people accessing our services.

The platform allows text, voice, video and screen-sharing capabilities, making it an extremely powerful tool for running youth groups and activities in a variety of ways. It’s also extremely popular among young people, with most already using it with friends, meaning it’s an easy and attractive option for engaging with us.

Going forward, we aim to expand the community to young people who don’t already access our services and we will run regular events and activities within it. This will also work alongside our upcoming learning hub in Moodle, where will we provide educational content for young people.

To refer to or for young people to access our groups: https://www.lgbtyouth.org.uk/groups-and-support/find-local-youth-groups/.
We offer a wide range of groups, activities, and events for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people and their friends.
Whether you want to meet other LGBT young people, gain skills and qualifications, or be more politically active, we've got something for you!
