LGBT Youth Charter

LGBT History Month sees the launch of Lancashire's LGBT Youth Charter

Young people from across Lancashire have been involved in a four month project to develop an LGBT+ Youth Charter.  The Charter outlines the top 10 things that LGBT young people have a right to and how fulfilment of these rights will help support them to reach their potential.

Eight groups of young people took part in workshops development by the central YPS team where they made LGBT flour babies; timeline; and imagined visits to hospitals, young people's centres, children's centres and schools; decided and prioritised rights and responsibilities; and helped to design the LGBT+ Youth Charter.

The official launch of the Charter will take place in February (LGBT History Month) at the three events, supported by Lancashire County Council, in Preston, Lancaster and Burnley.  The theme for this year is Religion, Beliefs and Philosophy so the launch of the charter is very fitting.

Organisations, services and teams are asked to show their commitment to the Charter by displaying it within their venues and offices working towards/achieving the activities suggested by young people.  Please join in this commitment by downloading the Charter below and displaying it in your setting.
