Youth Services & Groups
Since 2007, we have worked with youth and community organisations around Ireland to ensure inclusion of LGBTI+ young people in services nationwide. When we first opened our doors, young people travelled for as long as three hours to attend our youth groups and access support services. Our National Network was set up to provide nationwide support for young LGBTI+ people closer to home. The National Network connects Youth Workers and Volunteers from across Ireland to share knowledge and best practices, support one another, and work collectively for changes – informed by the voice and experience of LGBTI+ young people.
We now support almost 50 groups from Kerry to Donegal. These groups provide accepting, safe spaces for young LGBTI+ people to gather, learn, and have fun. We work in partnership with Youth Work Ireland, Foróige and several community groups to ensure that their services are inclusive of the LGBTI+ community.
