Spectra LGBTQ Youth Group Online

Info:

Spectra’s youth group will now be running online. Spectra’s youth service is for 13-18-year olds who identify as LGBTQ+ and who want a space to socialise with other LGBTQ+ young people and to find support with their mental health, identity and personal development. Our services are open to young people in London. Sessions run during term-time only.

REFERRAL
To refer yourself to be part of our group please email javaid@spectralondon.org.uk.

Once referred you will be emailed a form to collect basic information and emergency contact details. After this Javaid will invite you for a quick chat on Zoom to find out more about you and if there are any ways Spectra can best support you. Finally, you will be ready to join!

SESSIONS
Sessions will take place through Zoom on:

Monday’s 7pm-8pm (chat and chill)

Friday’s 5pm-6pm (activity session)
These sessions are structured around themes to help young people with their selfdevelopment, with a focus on emotional wellbeing, relationships and queer identity. Keep an eye on our Instagram page where we will be giving regular updates on what sessions are coming.
