COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR LGBT –
Breakout Youth is a Hampshire based charity set up to support young people up to the age of 25 who identify as LGBTQ+. Since its inception 25 years ago, they have expanded from having just 4 youth groups in different locations to now covering 8 different areas across Hampshire; in some of these regions they hold more than one group – totaling a whopping 13 groups! This magnificent charity has been able to stretch its work beyond the young people they assist to collaborate with their parents through parent support groups. Breakout Youth has expanded furthermore to deliver 1-2-1 support within schools and carry out exciting projects such as two LGBTQ+ music groups, allowing young people to develop in music making, song writing, production and recording. The length of time this service has been running emphasizes that there is a continuous need for this kind of support.
