Family Support Service

Allsorts not only supports children & young people but parents/carers too.


Allsorts Family Support Service emerged in 2013 in response to the need for parents/carers of children and young people who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or exploring their sexual orientation and/or gender identity (LGBT+), to connect and provide each other with support, community and friendship. 

To find out more about the types or support on offer, please contact our Family Support Worker by filling in the Family Support Work Enquiry Form below.

What we do:

It is our intention to provide an opportunity to:

  • Find support, community and friendship with other parents/carers and families.
  • Share experiences and information with other parents/carers and families.
  • Have your voice heard and, when appropriate, have your views fed into consultations with local and national services about raising and supporting LGBT+ children and young people.

What we don't do:

  • Provide, or subscribe to, one explanation of why children and young people are LGBT+ or exploring their sexual orientation or gender-exploring.
  • Provide any diagnosis or assessment of children and young people.

Allsorts Youth Groups

  • Primary School Age: Kids Group which runs monthly on Saturday mornings
  • Secondary School Age: TAG a fortnightly LGBT+ group
  • College Age: Drop-in runs weekly and our monthly Transformers group (specifically for trans and gender-exploring young people) which both provide support for our over 16’s, up until they turn 26.
