Providing information, advice, support and guidance to LGBT young people, their parents and carers

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

In these unprecedented times, our main priority is the safety and well being of our service users, staff and volunteers. To reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus to our service users, staff and volunteers we have decided to suspend face-to-face appointments at our offices, home visits and group activities. We will, however, 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 will continue to review our decision in light of any further advice and guidance from the UK government and will keep you informed of any changes. See our contact page for more information.

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.
