Happy As I am
Project Category: Registered charity
Happy as I am was setting up to fill an empty hole of provision for LGBTQ+ young people in Bedfordshire, the group was set up over a year ago and has now over 30 young people attending youth clubs for this community twice a month in Leighton Buzzard and Biggleswade in Central Bedfordshire.
The need for this provision was down to the isolation and need for this group to support and help each other to cope with their lives, the project has seen young people come together and work in partnership with Healthwatch Central Bedfordshire to produce a information booklet to be used by Teachers and professionals in school to infom and educate issues that affect young LGBTQ+ young people in our present day society.
Our groups help young people with their sexuality, transitioning and everyday lives, young people have commented that they are now better in their mental health due to having a safe space to come to.
