Apply for Accreditation


Accreditation is the BeLonG To seal of approval for LGBTI+ youth groups that are part of our National Network. To achieve accreditation, a youth group must follow these five core principles:

  • Young person-centered: recognise that young people are central to the work and that their rights are paramount.
  • Safety and well-being: ensure and promote safety and well-being. Recognise that the well-being and safety of youth is always safe guarded.
  • Education and personal development: recognise that activities must advance the personal development and education of young people.
  • Equality, diversity and inclusiveness: recognise that safe learning environments are open and accessible to all young people.
  • Quality and improvement: demonstrate a commitment to quality youth work and continuous improvement, recognising an organisation’s shared commitment to provide and improve quality youth work and deliver high standards of services to young people.
