Proud Parents from Free2B

Proud Parents is a group for parents of LGBTQ+ children, supported by Free2B.  Free2B is a London based Community Interest Company with the aim of supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals, those questioning their sexuality &/or gender, plus individuals who define themselves by alternative identities (LGBTQ+).

We provide a unique provision in delivering three distinct, yet interrelated services:

  • support for young people;
  • support for parents and
  • LGBTQ+ training for organisations & education establishments.

Our core aim is to provide a safe, social space for LGBTQ+ young people and parents to be able to come together, share common experiences and ‘be themselves’ without fear of discrimination.

Current services:

5:30-6pm 1:1 drop-ins  6:00-8pm main group session 8-8:30pm flexible time... for socialising, extending group discussion etc
