Support for young people

If you identify as a young LGBTQ+ person we have a range of support you can access.


BeYou meet-ups offer a safe and non-judgemental setting. You can meet new people who share some of the same experiences as you and talk to our team for advice.

If you are interested in joining one of our groups, we’d love to hear from you – click below to get in touch. One of our friendly team will reply to you with some questions and details on how to join. You won’t have to answer anything you are not comfortable with sharing; we just need to get in touch so we can make sure the groups remain safe spaces for everyone.

Not ready to join us at one of our groups? We have help and advice on our resources pages as well as offering one to one support.

One to one support

Everyone, at times, can find things a little challenging and difficult to manage. You may want to chat with an experienced LGBTQ+ youth support worker.

Sessions are between 30 mins to 1 hour, we do what works for you. They may take place at a youth centre, online or in the community.

For parents, carers or friends

If you are the parent, carer, or friend of an LGBTQ+ young person and are looking for advice about how to support them we have information for you here, or you’re interested in our parent, carer meet-ups contact us below.

You can also use the same link to make a referral on someone’s behalf to our fully trained, supportive team.

For professionals

If you work with young people and you'd like to refer someone to The BeYou Project, we can help. As well as individual support, we also offer practical support for teaching professionals who want to make their school, or college more LGBTQ+ inclusive.
