Allsorts Youth Project

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

  • They 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 their advocacy service, they support young people who are 16+ to understand their rights should they ever face discrimination or issues as a result of their LGBTU 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 LGBTU youth support and education in schools, colleges and other youth settings, with the aim to positively promote LGBTU 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.
