In your area

The BeYou Project runs online meet-ups where you can be yourself, meet others and get advice for issues you are facing.  They are available to young people in Kent and Medway.

What are the groups and when do they run?

The meet-ups take place on Zoom and are safe spaces for LGBTQ+ young people or young people who think they might be LGBTQ+. You can meet new people who share some of the same feelings and experiences as you, socialise and talk in a safe and non-judgemental setting. It’s also a great way to meet the team that run the BeYou Project, who can offer you additional support if you need it.

Age group When

13 – 17 years Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5 – 6pm
18 – 25 years Wednesdays 5.30pm – 6.30pm

How to join our online groups

If you are interested in joining email us at beyou@porchlight.org.uk. From there, someone from our friendly team will get in touch with some questions and details on how to join the group. 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.

If you identify as a young LGBTQ+ person then you are welcome and we’d love to hear from you. If you are under 13 we can still support you. Contact us on beyou@porchlight.org.uk and someone from our team will get in touch with you. Not ready to join us at one of our groups? Take a look at our help and advice and resources pages.
