MONTHLY DROP IN SESSIONS
Meet up with other parents, family members and members of local LGBT+ communities with refreshments, supported by volunteers from the Angels of Freedom.
With changes to the monthly social events lead by the Angels we are no longer able to offer a specific 'families' networking space, however our Wellbeing & Social Café continues as a family friendly LGBT+ affirmative provision. We welcome family, friends and allies to join us at the event.
Parents/guardians are invited to speak to our volunteers at the event, which includes other parents with lived experience of supporting their LGBTQ+ children (of all ages) - Alternatively, you're welcome to attend with your young people, an accepting and affirming activity for all.
Supporting parents in the LGBT+ community.
We've been supported, and continue to work closely with the national charity FFLAG, who have been working hard to help the community for over 25 years.
There are a number of resources available to download from their website, both for parents with LGBT+ children and also to provide advice to children in coming out to their parents.
Helping gender-diverse kids, young people and their families since 1995
Mermaids are an awesome national charity based here in Leeds who we are proud to endorse and support. They offer a helpline for young people and their families, groups and activities along with online support forums (as well as extensive campaigning, lobbying and advocacy).
