Together For You supports Belfast Pride Festival

30 Jul 2015

During this week of Belfast Pride, Together For You wants to remind those within the LGB&T community of the range of support available for individuals and their families.

The Rainbow Project, under Together For You offer a range of services for the LGB&T Community.

Peer SupportRainbow Project

Through the Together For You project The Rainbow Project are developing four peer and social support groups for LGB&/T individuals and their families resident in rural areas where there is no or limited LGB&T support network or structure.

Currently there are groups established in Omagh and Enniskillen, with a further two locations currently being explored.  For further information, please contact Nuala Devenny by phone: 028 9031 9030 or email:

One to One Support

Through the Together For You project The Rainbow Project will offer one to one support to LGB&T people and their families.

LGB&/T people are more likely to experience poorer emotional health and wellbeing than their heterosexual peers. This is due to discrimination, prejudice, violence and isolation and the development of poorer coping mechanisms for dealing with these stressors.

For more information on this service contact The Rainbow Project on 028 9031 9030 or

Training Workshops

As LGB&/T people experience poorer emotional health and wellbeing outcomes compared to their heterosexual peers, these programmes and training workshops will be led by identified need and requests from the LGB&T group participants. These courses will include, but are not limited to, LGB&T personal development programmes, Safetalk, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), Mental Health First Aid, Drugs and Alcohol Awareness, Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Awareness, Advocacy and Hate Crime, Family and Youth support and a range of other courses and programme which will benefit the emotional health and wellbeing of the participants.
