Support U was born in 2010 following an increased demand for support, advice and guidance with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* issues within Reading and the Thames Valley.
Our volunteering team are here to answer your calls, offer a warm welcome at our drop-in centre, and can be found at our support groups. Together, we respond to over 3,500 queries each year, covering a range of health, social and support topics.
Are you in need help with a LGBT+ related issue, or know somebody that does? Get in touch via our secure messaging for confidential help from one of our support team.
We operate support and social groups in the local area, including; Trans* Support Group, the LGBT+ Youth Group (Affinity), monthly TV/CD Social Group, and regular sexual health and HIV testing.
We are the selected Stonewall training partner for the Thames Valley and South West region for LGBT training courses for Primary and Secondary school environments. Our training courses equip school staff to tackle Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic (HBT) bullying and give them the knowledge and skills to train other colleagues.
