Support for young LGBTQ people

YC Hertfordshire supports young LGBTQ people through 16 LGBTQ projects across the county and through the 'Who not What' group, which represents the voice of the young LGBTQ community of Hertfordshire at a county-wide level.

 

The Young Pride in Herts website was created by the Who not What group. It contains a wealth of information to support young LGBTQ people as well as information for parents and professionals.
