Christmas appeal

Please help us reach our £5000 target!

Christmas is such a difficult time for LGBTQ+ young people who are not accepted by their families. Please consider supporting our appeal and help us continue our vital work.
 
We have lots of different ways to help to suit everyone.

For full details on each of these options, please scroll through the page

I have gained a new understanding of what it's like to be in the community, everyone is so open and inclusive, I have made a whole other family and it's a brilliant place to  make friends who truly support you in who you are. 

I couldn't be where I am today if I had never come to GAP and then Rainbow Power. I treasure everything about my time here.

I now have support on my gender identity and sexuality. I also now have a safe space to be my self with others like me. It has helped a ton with my mental health.

I love feeling like I have a place where I can truly be me.

I feel more welcomed than I would at home so this is like a family to me.

Despite recent victories for LGBTQ+ equality, in reality, many young people still struggle daily against discrimination and bullying.

In a comprehensive survey of our membership, 63% stated they have experienced HBT-phobia in their daily lives. (2018)

96% of our members stated that through our support they now have a wider network and feel part of a community.

LGBTQ+ young people come to The Gap youth club in London to feel safe & included. Many of our members are not out at home or school and the Gap is the only place they can be their true selves. We desperately need funds to be able to offer much needed 1:1 mentoring to support our members. The negative impact of discrimination often leads to mental health difficulties including: self harm, drug & alcohol misuse, depression & anxiety, as well as higher levels of truancy to avoid the school environment. Our members also face homelessness if their family rejects their sexuality &/or gender identity. Some members sadly turn to risky behaviours as a way to try and ‘fit in’ leaving them open to exploitation.

 

We believe every LGBTQ+ child has the right to be themselves without fear of discrimination or bullying. If you believe this too, please help by becoming a Free2B sponsor

Free2B values a young person’s right to privacy and we do not make public an individual child’s need for help. Where we have photos of young people, we have sought appropriate permission and changed details including the child’s name. Privacy and respect are important for both children and sponsors.
