How can I offer this in my service?
- Provide group work and activities that foster sharing, connection and togetherness
- Be aware that although young people may share an LGBTQ+ label they are not all the same. Offer support that is sensitive to these differences e.g. Queer, Trans, Intersex, Black People & People of Colour (QTIBPOC) group
- Provide opportunities to engage with wider LGBTQ+ culture and networks e.g. Pride

Georgie* (young person) said “a sense of community. It's something that sounds so simple, but it honestly means the world when you feel just that little bit less alone. Especially in today's society, it's so easy to feel detached, but the service is there to provide young people with both a community and the feeling that someone is there for them.’
