Cara-Friend is delighted to announce the return of its LGBT Youth Regional Groups over the coming weeks. The first group to return is Cookstown Cara-Friend LGBT Youth which will begin on Wednesday, October 19th and continue fortnightly each Wednesday from 7-9pm in the Cookstown Youth Resource Centre. All those identifying as LGBTQ+ and aged between 12 and 25 are welcome to attend with no referral necessary, simply drop in and say hello! Lisburn Cara-Friend LGBT Youth returns on Thursday, October 20th and Thursday, October 27th from 6-8pm in Lisburn YMCA. After that it will run weekly from Monday, November 7th. Cara-Friend LGBT Youth Ballymena returns to N-Gage fortnightly from Thursday, November 3rd, 3.30pm-6pm. 

If you have any queries regarding the Cookstown, Lisburn or Ballymena groups, please contact Jo McParland on joanne.mcparland@cara-friend.org.uk

Cara-Friend LGBT Youth Antrim will also be returning in the coming weeks, along with a new regional group in Strabane. Details to follow soon on the start dates and regular meetings for these.

Cara-Friend LGBT Youth regional groups aim to bring services and support for all LGBTQ+ youth out of the main urban centres and into the more rural areas to support young people who identify as LGBT, or are questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. It’s a safe space environment where young people can be themselves, and meet other people who are in the same situation as themselves.

Cara-Friend also offer other services regionally across Northern Ireland, including workshops and training for schools, youth clubs and other organisations working with young people. A list of those can be found on our Training and Workshops page. We also offer one-to-one support for young people struggling with their identity, regardless of where they are located in Northern Ireland. Contact Declan on declan.meehan@cara-friend.org.uk to arrange.
