LGBTQ+ resources

Children & Young People's LGBTQ+ Working group

The LGBTQ+ working group was set up in 2017 in response to the Proud Trust report (2016).

The working group paused during Covid due to ongoing service pressures but the group has restarted and a search for a new chair has commenced.

The group has representatives from Salford ICP, Salford CAMHS; Education, Fostering Team, Youth Service, Children’s Services; 42nd Street; Salford CVS, The Proud Trust, LGBT Youth Group, Equality & Diversity Team.

An action plan has been developed following the recommendations in the Proud Trust report under the following headings: 

  1. Communication and Engagement
  2. Good Practice
  3. Workforce Development
  4. Service User Involvement
  5. Service Development

The restarted group will meet to assess progress to date on the 5 recommendations and update actions where areas of development are identified.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Research - The Proud Trust

Experiences and identified needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) young people in Salford and implications for tailored service provisions - Consultation research with young people and service providers (2016)

The Proud Trust was commissioned, as part of Salford's 0-25 Emotional Health and Wellbeing work, to undertake a consultation with LGBT young people in Salford.

The aim of the research was to better understand the likely size of the LBGT population aged under 25 in Salford and their experiences and needs in terms of emotional health and wellbeing. We also wanted to engage young people and services through the research and involve them in influencing and shaping services. Finally, we asked to look at what works well here in Salford and elsewhere.

Salford LGBTQ+ Youth Groups

LGBT group

Salford Youth Service support 3 (soon to be 4) youth groups across the City for young people aged 13-17 years who identify as LGBT or who are questioning their sexuality and/or gender. 

The groups provide an opportunity for young people to socialise, make friends and take part in lots of events like Pride, IDAHOT, LGBT history month and go on trips and visits.

Young people receive support from staff and peers looking at LGBT related issues.  The group is a safe place for young people to explore their identity which can help them discover who they want to become.
