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.
