What support do you offer young LGBT+ persons – including with the cost of living crisis?
We always have adult mentors on site for anyone who wants a chat or is dealing with a specific issue. All our staff and mentors identify as LGBT+ themselves and they come from diverse backgrounds. We have a Discord server too so young persons can DM us if they prefer. And we offer a counselling service that young persons can refer themselves to. It’s run by LGBT+ persons who are training to be, or are recently qualified as, a counsellor – and all sessions are supervised.
Our Euston-based hub is a cosy and safe space. It’s a lovely place to hang out at any time of year including the cold winter months. We also host clothes swaps every couple of months and will often invite a hairdresser along to give free haircuts.
Lastly, we want everything we do to be accessible so most of our events and activities are free. If we do ask for a donation, there will always be a funded option so if you can’t afford to come, we will pay for you.
