The Proud Trust

The Proud Trust, formerly the LGBT Youth North West is a regional organisation that seeks to support lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people in the North West of England. We do this in three main ways:

1. Services for Young People – we run a variety of weekly youth work sessions for young people in central Manchester, Stockport and Wythenshawe. We also run a Peer Mentoring Service for young people to access support remotely.

2. The Regional Network – we coordinate a professionals network for youth workers running LGBT youth services across the whole of the North West.

This is done with regular meetings, a fortnightly newsletter and regional events for young people. We operate this network in partnership with the North West Regional Youth Work Unit.

With this network we have developed a ten year strategy for the region called the 2020 Vision for LGBT Young People:

3. Training and Consultancy – we offer a wide range of LGBT Awareness training opportunities from workshops for young people through to bespoke training for professionals working in the youth sector.
