Cause

BeLonG To is a national organisation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) young people, aged between 14 and 23.

We believe that LGBT young people need to be respected and cared for on the same basis as all other young people, and that when they are safe and supported in their families, schools & society they will thrive as healthy and equal citizens.

Response

We provide direct youth work services to LGBT young people in Dublin and support LGBT youth groups all around the country. These are spaces where LGBT young people can meet each other, get involved in activities and see that their identities and selves are valuable and important.

Projects in 2018

  1. In BeLonG To we talk to parents regularly who have just been told by their son or daughter that they are Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual or Transgender (LGBT). This is part of our Parent Support Programme.

  2. We run local youth groups around Ireland to support LGBT young people. 

  3. Our drugs service exists to address concerns people may have about drug/alcohol use and offers people the opportunity to access support in dedicated LGBT youth space.
