The BeYou Project has been set up to support LGBT+ young people in Kent by Porchlight. There are weekly meet-ups across Kent, details about other LGBT+ events in Kent, and help and advice about coming out, staying safe, sexual health and much more. The website is www. thebeyouproject.co.uk/

The young people usually decide as a group how they spend the time. Some weeks there are discussions and at others they  play pool and socialise. All groups are asked regularly how they want to spend their time. Most of the sessions involve things that the young people bring such as items for discussion or they bring games in. 

The Swale, Gravesend, Dartford and Swanley group all helped plan and prepare a trip ice skating- they helped plan the travel, location and timings.

The groups are also regularly visited by the participation workers.
