Set up an LGBTI+ Youth Group

If you are passionate about setting up an LGBTI+ youth group, we are here to help. Each year we support a number of new youth groups to establish themselves and open their doors to young LGBTI+ people.

We offer a step-by-step, clear and practical guide to developing an LGBTI+ youth group based on the experiences and lessons learned in developing our own services. This guide centres on the BeLonG To’s National Quality Standard for LGBTI+ Youth Work. This ensures that LGBTI+ youth groups are safe, education spaces focused on the needs of young people.

The first step is to fill in our Youth Group Start Up Application form and return it by email to Once we receive your application, we will get in touch with you to support you in the process.
