Our Meetings


We welcome all parents and family members and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT) to our meetings. We meet monthly as an informal support group in Central Manchester, helping new members to develop understanding and acceptance of their young person's sexual orientation or gender identity and generally sharing our experiences. We are not trained counsellors, but can provide help through our own experiences.

Manchester Parents Group Meetings

Meetings are held in a private room so complete confidentiality is assured to everyone.
Meetings are held on the first Saturday of each month.

If you prefer we can arrange to meet you one-to-one for a coffee somewhere. Contact us to arrange something.

Tea, coffee and cakes will be available from the church café.
Join us at our monthly Parents Support Group for a friendly chat with people who understand.
