Our youth groups are fun and supportive spaces for Sussex-based children and young people to make friends, connect with the LGBT+ community, explore identity and participate in workshops and activities. You will meet in a comfortable & confidential setting with other LGBT+ young people where you can get involved in workshops and activities that matter to and will build your skills, resilience and confidence. We will also connect you with other professionals and organisations as and where appropriate.
At our youth groups you can expect to get involved in fun, creative and interesting activities, participate in group games and have the opportunity to go on trips and residentials! We have guests visiting our youth groups from other organisations & services which you may find helpful and interesting, and of course we have free food and drink!
All Allsorts staff and volunteers are LGBT+ and are trained to work with young people. There are usually between 2-4 members of staff as well as volunteers who help us to run our groups.
We plan activities and workshops (either delivered by Allsorts staff or visitors) with you in mind. On occasion, we will cover topics including sexual health, hate crime, mental health, relationships and identity. We encourage all young people to give it a go as we pride ourselves on creating a safe and supportive environment to talk about challenging topics. We know it is important to provide spaces for open and honest discussions, to learn together and to feel safe and comfortable to challenge each other. We won't shy away from tricky conversations and we will support you through these discussions, topics and themes.
Please note, you will not be able to access Allsorts without having made a referral and having had an introductory meeting with one of our LGBT+ youth support workers (what to expect at a meeting). We look forward to meeting you!
