We’re still here to support LGBT+ young people (and parents / carers), but are changing the way this happens.
Support will be carried out over the phone or online instead of meeting face-to-face. Weekly BeYou meet-ups are not currently being held, but we are looking into ways to carry these out online.
We understand that LGBT+ young people can experience feelings of isolation at the best of times, so we’re doing what we can to ensure they feel connected, supported and part of the community.
The BeYou Project connects young people in Kent who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary or are questioning their sexual orientation and / or gender identity.
We offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space where young LGBT+ people can meet to socialise, have fun and help each other.

How to get involved
The BeYou project is funded by local NHS organisations and is run by Porchlight.
Porchlight is a charity that helps people who have nowhere to go and no-one to turn to. Some are homeless, others are struggling to cope with the pressures in their lives and need our support to keep on track.
