About | The Proud Trust

The Proud Trust supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people in the UK. We do this in three main ways:

1. Services for Young People – we run a variety of weekly youth work sessions for young people in Manchester and several areas of Greater Manchester including Stockport,  WythenshaweRochdale and Oldham.

We also run a Peer Mentoring Service for young people to access support remotely.

2. The Network – we coordinate a professionals network for youth workers running LGBT youth services across the UK. This is done with regular meetings, a fortnightly newsletter and events for young people. We operate this network in partnership with the North West Regional Youth Work Unit. With this network we have developed a ten year strategy for the region called the 2020 Vision for LGBT Young People:

3. Training and Consultancy – we offer a wide range of LGBT Awareness training opportunities from workshops for young people through to bespoke training for professionals working in the youth sector.

4. The LGBT Centre in Manchester. We have been coordinating and managing the Centre since 2013. For information about the centre please contact us or read the Building Use Statement.
