Befriending and Peer Support | LGBT youth north west

The peer mentoring team are young volunteers trained to offer support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people.

A peer mentor is someone you can talk to in confidence, someone you can rely on, and someone who won’t judge you.

If you are a young Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans people or you’re questioning your sexual orientation or gender then contact us using the details below (facebook, telephone or email).
