Supporting LGBTQ+ children, young people and their families

The Barnardo’s Positive Identities Service works with children, young people and families and provides support with gender identity and sexuality.

We run different areas of support, with our main one being Gender Space. Gender Space supports children and young people who identify as trans, non-binary, or are gender questioning. We also support their families too and have a dedicated Parent/Carer group. Please see the ‘Our Services’ tab and click on Gender Space for further info on this.

We also offer LGBTQ+ training and consultancy (called Safe Zone) to schools, professionals and organisations who work with children and young people. We want to ensure that places are inclusive and accessible to LGBTQ+ young people, that professionals are proactively challenging discrimination and prejudice, and are confident in supporting young people & families around gender identity and sexuality. More information about the training and support we offer to professionals and community groups can be found in our Training section.
