Opportunities for young people

Below are opportunities for young people that Free2B have received from EXTERNAL ORGANISATIONS.

They are not part of Free2B and therefore we can not guarantee the quality, content  or inclusivity of each opportunity.

We do request that each organisation provides us with information on their LGBTQ+ inclusivity policies and procedures  (particularly around respecting names and pronouns).

We will only share opportunities when we have received acceptable policy information – though we recognise that policy is not always reflected in actual day to day practice – if you attend an opportunity and experience any discrimination please do let us know so we can follow this up.
