We provide safe spaces to support LGBTQ+ communities

Free2B Alliance is a London based community organisation, supporting LGBTQ+ young people and their parents.

We provide 1:1 and group services in schools and in the community including trans groups, with all of our provisions co-developed with our members. We challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and we provide LGBTQ+ awareness training to schools and organisations to promote inclusivity.

We seek to provide safe spaces and champion empowerment, acceptance and a place where you are Free2B!

    What do Individuals & Organisations Say about us?

    • I just wanted to thank the team at Free2b Alliance. You have given us the right support and advice at just the right time. Not having experienced it before it has sometimes been hard to negotiate our way through developing the right approach for a child who is transitioning; your straightforward, sensitive, caring and informative advice has been a life-line. Thank you!

    • I've been going to the Gap since I was 13. Nicki has helped me through so much. She has helped me come to terms with who I am. She's always there to talk, she's helped me through being in love, my first heartbreak. I feel like I can talk to her about anything, she has become like a second mum to me.

    • 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!

    • I volunteer at Gap because I believe it is still so important for the members to have a space to be themselves, explore their sexuality and gender without fear of judgement. It is great to see how well the group gets along, how supportive they are of each other and the benefits to them of having a safe space and the support. It is just an enjoyable couple of hours on a Friday which I find really rewarding.
