Quick Exit

In your area

The BeYou Project runs regular meet-ups right across Kent.

We are still running regular meetups but we have changed the way they run because of the coronavirus outbreak. We are now running regular group video calls instead of seeing each other face to face but the groups remain a safe space for you to meet others.

What are the groups and when do they run?

The meetups are on zoom and they are safe spaces for LGBT+ young people or young people who think they might be LGBT+. 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 support you.

We are running virtual meetups weekly:

Age group When
13 – 18 years meetup Mon – Thurs 4pm – 5pm
18 – 25 years meetup Weds 5.30pm – 6.30pm

**Please note that meet-ups won’t be running between Monday 24 August and Sunday 7 September**

How to join a group

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 LGBT+ person then you are welcome and we’d love to hear from you.

If you are under 18 we can still support you. Contact us on BeYou@porchlight.org.uk and someone from our team will get in touch with you.
