Providing information, advice, support and guidance to LGBT young people, their parents and carers
As Covid-19 restrictions are eased we are starting to open up our services for in-person face to face meetings and groups. We will continue to provide support over the telephone, by email and text and where possible via video-calling for as long as we have the capacity to do this. We are still taking referrals at this time, our face to face groups are up and running.
The LGBT yOUTh Service is a safe and confidential service for 11 – 24-year olds in Kirklees run by the Brunswick Centre.
Identity offers confidential support and advice to all young people aged 12 – 18yrs in Calderdale, regarding sexual and gender identity, home and school concerns, and all other worries they may have.
Looking for help?
If you are a young person, or the parent or guardian of someone looking for support, we have compiled a list of local and national charities that can offer you help.
Remember to always call 999 if you are at immediate risk, or call the police on 101 if you think a crime has been committed.
The yOUTh Service is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and works across all of Kirklees providing support to LGB&T young people, their parents and carers.
