We provide 1:1 support for parents of LGBTQ+ children

Our qualified parent worker Nicki Ryan is here to help and can offer information, advice and guidance to support you. We work with parents and family members at all different stages of their journey - whether your child has just come out and you're feeling confused or shocked, or whether your child is now an adult and has been out for years and you'd just like to meet other rainbow families...

If you'd like support, please get in touch by phone (or complete the contact form below) Nicki: 07884 425 408

Parent feedback

I am the mother of an 11 year old transgender boy who has lived (for most purposes) as a male since toddlerhood but transitioned at his all-girls school only last September. Nicki has provided invaluable support and advice to my son and to me over the past year or so. We both love Nicki and trust her implicitly. My son in particular really opens up to her and seems actually to listen to her gentle suggestions! She is highly professional, exceptionally well-informed and trained, and thoroughly in touch with the needs and concerns of LGBTQ+ young people and the community in general. More importantly, she is a warm, genuine, respectful, intelligent and intuitive person, who has transformed the lives of many LGBTQ+ young people who come to her, often in circumstances where there is nowhere else to turn. She is like a surrogate parent, street-smart older sibling and wise community leader combined!
