LGBT Melton provides support services for young people and adults who identify as LGBTQ+ and live within Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We offer weekly groups in Melton and Charnwood for 11-18 year olds and Monthly social groups in Melton Mowbray for 18+ adults.
Our offer provides 1:1 support to young people in schools, colleges or alternative educational provisions who have issues/concerns related to their gender or sexual identity, self confidence, bullying/discrimination, anxieties, family issues and relationships. We also offer family support to families who are having issues related to family members who identify as LGBTQ+, this service helps to build family relationships and work through issues that could have the potential to have a negative impact on the family. The group offers outdoor and sporting activities, arts and crafts and days out.
Our support workers are highly qualified and experienced with over 30 years experience of youth and family support work between them.
