The issues that are addressed within the group are relevent to the members needs and include: mental health issues, general health and well being, sexual health and relationship, bullying, ‘coming out / coming in’, safety awarness, religion and sexuality etc.
How might this group help me?
It is the aim of the group to allow young gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people to express themselves without fear or redicule, and to form lasting relationship that lessen the fellings of isolation and loneliness.
