The BeYou Project offers support right across Kent and Medway. We are still running regular meet-ups 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 meet-ups take place on Zoom and 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 offer you additional support if you need it.

We run weekly virtual meetups.

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

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 13 we can still support you. Contact us on beyou@porchlight.org.uk and someone from our team will get in touch with you.
