Parents & Carers Service


Allsorts Parents & Carers 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 get in touch by filling in the Parents & Carers 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.
