This group is an informal meeting for other parents of LGBT children/young people, who are looking for the opportunity to meet other parents and share feelings, thoughts and experiences, while also getting support, information and advice.
We welcome all questions you may have and no subject is taboo. This is a friendly place to discuss your child, without discrimination or judgement. We believe if you are reaching out to us, then you are open to understanding.
We also accept people from the wider family such as Grandparents. We would love it if you are comfortable in your child being LGBT+ and would like to be in on the conversation to help others. Contact us if you would like to know if this is the group for you.
The Family Network meetings take place in a safe and secure location at our wellbeing centre, located at 15 Castle Street in Reading.
Your privacy is of utmost importance. Our support group is based on mutual understanding and respect. We never disclose the details of attendees of our groups, or post any online content without explicit prior permission.
Free tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the meeting.
We wish all visitors to feel comfortable in themselves, we would expect our visitors to respect the views of other people within the group at all times.
Our support groups are completely free. If you wish to donate to the running cost of the event, you’re welcome to make a small donation at one of the donation pots available across the centre.
