New BeLonG To Service
12 Jan 2009
On December 19th, BeLonG To's new on-line support service for LGBTs went 'live'. This is an exciting new service development at BeLonG to Youth Service and will run each weekend, on a pilot basis. Targeted at people between the ages of 14 and 23, the service operates on Friday nights from 8-11pm, Saturdays from 11am-2pm and Sunday nights from 8-11pm.
The support service is offered by trained professionals and is both confidential and free of charge. Users may access the service via e-mail on a once-off basis, or alternatively, regular appointment times can be arranged for those who want to avail of on-going support. BeLonG To hope this service will provide important additional support to those already in contact with LGBT youth services, and offer a way of accessing support for those not currently in touch with groups.
To access the support visit www.belongto.org and click on the icon 'onlinesupport'. The service is also advertised on popular LGBT community websites such as www.gcn.ie and www.queerid.com. Please spread the word to any LGBT young people!
