Allsorts Youth Project

In October 1999, Allsorts Youth Project was founded by Jess Wood and James Newton to meet the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans youth in Brighton and Hove.

Since November 2000, the project has received funding from the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, Comic Relief, Brighton and Hove City council, Connexions, PCT, Volunteering England, Pride, Awards for All, Youth Opportunities Fund, Big Boost, Children in Need, v-involved, Big Lottery Fund and other funders.

We provide a variety of services for LGBT young people and we are staffed by a part-time Project Director, a team leader, two part-time Youth Support Workers, a Youth Volunteering Development Worker, three peer support workers, a part-time administrator and a team of 25 volunteers. A Teen to Adult Personal Advisor has been seconded to the project full-time from CAMHS.

An average of thirty young people attend our services and an average of eight young people currently receive one-to-one support each week either face-to-face, by phone or email.

We provide a Trans Kids group for under 11's and also have our TAG 11-15 group, as well as a parents group.
