Allsorts Youth Project

Who we are

Allsorts listens to, supports and connects children and young people under 26 who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or exploring their sexual orientation and/ or gender identity (LGBT+). 

We aim to improve the lives of LGBT+ children & young people via a three-pronged approach;

  1. Direct specialist youth services for LGBT+ children & young people (youth groups, one-to-one support, advocacy and more)
  2. Family Support Services for parents/carers and siblings of trans/gender-exploring children & young people
  3. Training the wider community and professionals so all spaces and organisations can be safer and more inclusive for LGBT+ people. 

Young LGBT+ people deserve to feel safe and thrive at home, at school and in their communities.

There are a number of ways that we support young people:

  • We facilitate age-appropriate workshops and activities that are fun, interactive and often aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.
  • Provide safe spaces for young people to develop friendships with their peers.
  • Through our advocacy service, we support young people who are 16+ to understand their rights should they ever face discrimination or issues as a result of their LGBT+ identity.
  • Support young people to feel more at ease with their gender identity, and sexual orientation and in exploring and understanding who they are.
  • Provide specialist LGBT+ youth support and education in schools, colleges and other youth settings, with the aim to positively promote LGBT+ awareness and inclusion.
  • Support young people to engage with mainstream services that range from careers advice to counselling and more.
  • Provide young people with positive LGBT+ role models of varying ages, ethnicities, faiths, backgrounds, and abilities. This develops cross-generational understanding and a better sense of community history and diverse representation.
  • Offering  support to parents and carers.
  • Celebrate diversity in all its forms including ethnicity, background, faith and ability.
