- The Kite Trust gives young LGBTQ+ people a safe space to make friends and feel validated within their identities.
- It gives young people an opportunity to explore new craft activities, media and education.
- It introduces young people to different members of their community they may not otherwise meet e.g. through school or work, and strengthens connections and widens community outreach.
‘When I came out my family didn’t accept me, I felt lonely and abandoned, then I found out about The Kite Trust and my life changed for the best. I found a second family where I am not afraid to be who I am, I can finally be myself and not feel judged or ridiculed.’
