Peer Support and Activities

We offer peer support groups for young people aged 11-25 in County Durham and Newcastle. We aim to create a safe and friendly space for you to enjoy and hopefully meet new friends. Our peer groups are split up into different aged ranges. All of our activities and groups are ran by skilled workers, who have lots of experience of working with LGBT+ Young People (if you want to meet some of our team, check out our about us page).

If you are aged between 11 and 15, you can access our peer support groups in the area where you will gain support. In County Durham, here are some examples of past activities.
