Parents & Carers


We regularly talk to parents and carers who have just been told by their child that they are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LBGTI+).

While the experience felt by the young person and the parent is always unique, we recommend reading our guide of questions and answers as a starting place to support all members of a family through an emotional time.

Then, find out how we can support you through this journey.
