Children in need 2007

Young people from Allsorts Youth Project and two workers, Emma Welsh and Richard Gladman, appeared live on BBC’s Children In Need. This came after the Brighton-based LGBT youth group were awarded money from the BBC charity to cover the running costs for a mental health project.

Emma Welsh, a youth support worker at Allsorts, says: “At Allsorts we want to promote positive mental health for LGBT young people to support them to express their emerging identities, their distresses and their hopes for the future. The money awarded from Children In Need will help us immensely in enabling us to do this.”
