Important Status update - May 24

Our Volunteering and LGBTQ+ Projects have now come to a successful close.

We will no longer be delivering this type of support. All URPotential Referral forms are no longer in use.

For Volunteering enquiries the volunteer centre may be able to help:

LGBT+ Youth groups will continue to be delivered by:

The Wyre Youth Group

(held at Fleetwood)

The Blackpool Under 18 LGBTQ+ Social Action Youth Group

(held every 2 weeks at a central location in Blackpool)

Are you aged 12-17 years of age? Come and join LGBTQ+ social action group.

Do you want to have your voice heard about issues that matter to you?

Do you want to lead on projects and make a change in your community?

Do you want to be in a safe and welcoming environment where you feel listened to?

We are an inclusive group that meet to address social action and aspire for change to make Blackpool a kinder and more inclusive place for everyone to live.
