About us

About The BeYou Project

The BeYou Project connects young people in Kent and Medway who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or unsure of their sexual orientation and / or gender identity. We support young LGBTQ+ people from ages 8 -25 in a range of different ways.

We offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space where young LGBTQ+ people can meet to socialise, have fun and help each other. We can also give one-to-one support to young people who need extra help.

We provide advice and and manage a directory of support and information provided by other organisations. We’re also always keen to promote events, groups and resources aimed at Kent and Medway’s LGBTQ+ community.

If you want to find out how we can support you or want to let us know about something happening near you, please contact our team by emailing beyou@porchlight.org.uk

About Porchlight

The BeYou Project 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.

We provide children, young people and adults with the advice, guidance and skills to live independently in the future, play an active role in their local community and fulfil their potential. Working across Kent and the south east of England, we help people get support with their mental health, housing, education and employment.

There are lots of places to find out more about us and our work:

You can get in touch with us by emailingĀ headoffice@porchlight.org.uk. If you need help or advice, call our free helpline onĀ 0800 567 7699.
