CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

We’re still here to support LGBT+ young people (and parents / carers), but are changing the way this happens.

Support will be carried out over the phone or online instead of meeting face-to-face. Weekly BeYou meet-ups are not currently being held, but we are looking into ways to carry these out online.

We understand that LGBT+ young people can experience feelings of isolation at the best of times, so we’re doing what we can to ensure they feel connected, supported and part of the community.

——————–

We’re running a weekly meet-up in your area. These are safe spaces that anyone who thinks they might be LGBT+ can come along to.

You can meet new people who share some of the same feelings and experiences as you, socialise and just hang out in a safe and non-judgemental setting.

When? What time? Where?
Every Thursday 4 – 5.30pm The Garages, Ashford North Youth Centre, Mableton Avenue, Ashford TN24 8BJ

If you have any problems finding this venue, please call 07734 595307.

To find out more about our groups, please email beyou@porchlight.org.uk.

If you live in this area, you can also use the online counselling platform Kooth. Just go to www.kooth.com to setup a free account – once you’re signed up you can talk to trained counsellors online, read articles written by other young people, get support from the Kooth community and write in your own online journal. The service is free, safe and anonymous.
