Coronavirus: young people and family services

We're supporting the people who need us

We're here to support young people and families

Services for young people, families and adolescents

We work with young people (up to the age of 18) and their families who are having difficulty managing relationships and / or their emotions.

Porchlight is also working with food banks to support parents and carers who are struggling to provide food and drink for the family. If you are struggling, speak to your family support worker or visit this page for more information.

The BeYou Project (LGBT+ support)

Our BeYou service supports LGBT+ young people in Kent (aged 8 - 25) who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary or are questioning their sexual orientation and / or gender identity.

We understand that LGBT+ young people can experience feelings of isolation at the best of times, so we’re doing what we can to ensure they feel connected, supported and part of the community.

You can also find resources about coming out, staying safe, and advice for friends, family and careers on The BeYou Project website.

If you have questions about the way The BeYou Project is changing, email beyou@porchlight.org.uk
