May's Charity - The Proud Trust
We are back again with a brand new charity to support throughout May! Every single month we will be donating 10% of our profits and all the tips at the checkout to a different local charity. We will also be disclosing exactly how much has been raised for each charity at the end of the month! This May we are so excited to be supporting The Proud Trust. This is another fantastic Manchester-based charity and there are so many ways that we can support them together
The Proud Trust
The Proud Trust is a fantastic and innovative charity based in Greater Manchester which helps LGBTQ+ young people feel empowered and make a positive change for themselves! The organisation offers youth groups and coordinates national and regional LGBTQ+ youth work networks. The Proud Trust also manages the LGBTQ+ centre for Manchester and delivers training, runs events and undertakes important research.
This incredible charity sets out to address three main aims:
- Creating a better support network for LGBTQ+ youth groups and young people.
- Keeping young LGBTQ+ people on other people’s agendas so that schools, colleges, governments and other organisations considered and addressed LGBTQ needs.
- Providing opportunities to bring young people together in regional events such as; Pride Youth Games, Peer educator training and conferences.
It is no doubt that The Proud Trust are doing an incredible job and during 2019-2020 they asked young people what the direct impact of coming to the Proud Trust is:
- 99% feel more included, involved and accepted
- 87% are better able to look after their mental health
- 97% say that they accept themselves more because they have a space to learn about their gender and sexuality
- 94% feel more confident in themselves
