- They facilitate age-appropriate workshops and activities that are fun, interactive and often aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

- Support young people to feel more at ease with their gender identity, and sexual orientation and in exploring and understanding who they are.
- Provide specialist LGBT youth support and education in schools, colleges and other youth settings, with the aim to positively promote LGBT awareness and inclusion.
