Fruitbowl

Support and social activities in the city centre with friendly youth workers.

Our Fruitbowl groups – one for 12 to 15-year-olds and another for 16 and 17-year-olds – offer a fun chance to get support from other young people around things like your identity.

Younger group
A group for anyone LGBT+ or questioning aged 12, 13, 14 or 15
Meets on a Thursday night between 5-7pm (With a drop-in from 4.30-5pm)

Older group
A group for anyone LGBT+ or questioning aged 16 or 17
Meets on a Friday night between 5-7pm (With a drop-in from 4.30-5pm)

The groups offer support and social activities in the city centre, with youth workers Lois, Emily, Siobhan and Victoria offering support to individual young people either in person or via email or text.

Young people refer themselves to the project or are referred by teachers, youth workers, family members, social workers, the police, GPs and other professionals.

If you’re a young person interested in Fruitbowl, call or text the number below to speak to Lois. If you’d like to refer a young person to Fruitbowl, get in touch using the same numbers for more information.
