Allsorts Youth Project listens to, supports & connects children & young people between the ages of 5 and 25 years old, who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or unsure (LGBTU) of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
We provide a non-judgemental space for children and young people to feel heard, valued and safe. We are a small charity offering support to people dealing with real life sensitive situations.
We are not a lobby group, a campaigning organisation or a body that has any say regarding the medical process when discussing transgender issues or concerns.
Our approach is person-centred, meaning we are non-judgemental, non-directive (ie. we do not tell people what to do) and do not have an agenda in our work with children, young people or their families.
The current media attention regarding the issue of gender identity and how our organisation operates has been factually incorrect, misleading and distressing for service users, families and staff.
