What should I know?

The United Nations acknowledges the importance of different types of relationships for young people e.g. freedom of association to join groups and organisations; or rights to enjoy your own culture. These articles means that you have a right to, and  should be supported in building trusting relationships with important people in your life.

What might help me?

  1. Being supported to make friends with other young people and to feel connected to LGBTQ+ communities
  2. Support workers should be open and honest with you so you feel confident to trust them

Bea* (young person) said “the service has helped me open up more although I do believe this is because of the human connection and the experiences that my support practitioner has had. It makes me see the person as another human rather than well I guess a machine just doing their job if that makes sense. I've opened up due to that connection and the safety I feel.”
