The Proud Trust is an LGBT+ organisation that supports LGBT+ young people through youth groups, peer support, mentoring programs and the Proud Connections chat service.
Roots of this trust can be traced back to the 1970’s and the Gay Youth Group that met in Manchester, initially in Waterloo Place, and from 1988, the Sidney Street purpose-built Gay Centre.
In the years since, The Proud Trust have continued to put LGBT+ young people at the forefront of our work. They support young people across the north-west and beyond through youth groups, peer support, mentoring programmes and more. The trust work with and support adults in trusted positions, including schools and other children’s services, helping them make spaces more LGBT+ inclusive as well as improving confidence in tackling discrimination and celebrating diversity.
