Youth

Unfortunately, Merton LGBT+ Forum does not offer an LGBT+ youth group at this moment in time. We are keen to start a group when we have more volunteers. If you are interested you can apply in the form below to become a volunteer. Everyone is welcome!

In the meantime, we recommend that those looking for any information or support to visit free2b Alliance.

Free2b Alliance

Free2B support LGBTQ+ young people, through their junior and teen youth groups as well as offering 1:1 mentoring support in schools and in safe community spaces.

Free2B also support parents and deliver LGBTQ+ awareness training.
