Resources for Parents & Guardians

Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre focuses on supporting, educating and inspiring LGBT young persons. However, we recognise and understand that parents, carers, guardians and families may also need advice, information and support. Here you can find useful information on other organisations that may be able to help.

Families Together London

Families Together London is a London-based support group for the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people. Some parents, families and friends may not find it easy that a child, family member or friend is LGBT, and may find it hard to support them. We hold two meetings every month in London - one in Battersea and one in King's Cross. Meetings are confidential and offer a friendly and relaxed place in which to talk. 

LGBT+ Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council

The LGBT+ Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council welcomes Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Catholics, their parents, families and friends to Masses. They can provide a welcoming environment, support for families and pastoral advice.

Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays

FFLAG are dedicated to supporting parents and their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Other (LGBT+) young persons. We offer support to local parents groups and  help parents and families to better understand, accept and support their children with love and pride.

Switchboard LGBT+ Helpline

Welcome to Switchboard – the LGBT+ helpline – a place for calm words when you need them most. We’re here to help you with whatever you want to talk about. Nothing is off limits, and we understand how anxious you might feel before you pick up the phone. The majority of those who call are LGBT+, however, we also welcome friends, parents or family members of LGBT+ loved ones who are looking for some independent advice and support – everyone is welcome.
