LGBTQ+ support for parents and carers
Support for LGBTQ+ young people
Fun and safe LGBTQ+ youth clubs
Eikon is committed to providing friendly, confidential and warm support to young people who identify as LGBTQ+ in Surrey and their families.
At Eikon we understand the difficulties that LGBTQ+ young people can face in society; with too many experiencing isolation, bullying and family conflict or rejection, which can negatively impact on their mental health. We are working with schools, professionals, parents and guardians to ensure that we take a young person led approach. We focus on supporting young people to deal with these challenges and find safe communities where they can be themselves and experience the joy of celebrating themselves and feeling accepted.
If you or someone you know need support immediately, you may find these websites useful.
LGBTQ+ Youth Groups
Eikon’s LGBTQ+ Youth Groups are safe spaces for questions, support, discussions, activities and to make new friends. Our groups are completely free and open to all young people aged 11-18 (or up to 24 for young people and SEND) across Surrey who identify as LGBTQ+ or questioning.
If your young person is interested in joining our youth groups, they can use the link below to register their interest or email EikonLGBT@Eikon.org.uk for more details.
