The Rainbow Project is a BYS initiative to recognise, and respond to, the unique needs of young LGBTIQ+ people.
In 2017-18, one in 5 of the young people BYS supported identified as LGBTIQ+.
Created and managed by our passionate staff, the program includes:
- organising safe and inclusive activities
- reviewing our policies and practice to ensure inclusiveness
- collaboration with other specialist services and
- working towards developing safe housing options for queer young people.
We hope all young LGBTIQ+ people will find a strong ally base and safe space at BYS.
