Who not What

Who not What is a group of young people who have come together to represent the voice of the young lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender and questioning community of Hertfordshire.


Who Not What is a group of young LGBT+ people who represent the voice of LGBT+ young people in Hertfordshire.

Their aim is to improve services for the young lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender community, supported by youth workers from YCH Services for Young People.

Being a member of Who Not What will give you access to lots of great opportunities, including having a voice on improvements to support services to make them more LGBT+ friendly and accessible for other LGBT+ young people.

There are three Who Not What groups, so there will be one local to you! We have one group in the East of the county and one in the West, both of which are for young people aged 13-17. In addition to this, we have an online group for young people aged 18-24. All Who Not What groups meet once a month.

If you would like further information about Who Not What, or to register your interest in joining the group, just drop us an email at youngprideinherts@hertfordshire.gov.uk.


The Who Not What Project

In 2016 Who Not What secured funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to launch the Who Not What Project, which is still providing support for LGBT+ young people in Hertfordshire today.

The YCH Services for Young People county-wide Who Not What Project supports young LGBT+ people aged between 13 and 24. The project provides young people with regular access to safe and inclusive places to meet, where they have access to the support and guidance of our trained youth workers. In addition to this, there are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and to explore a range of current issues and topics including emotional wellbeing, physical wellbeing, healthy relationships, identity, sexual health and current affairs.

Read more about the project, its aims and what it has achieved so far in the 2019-2020 evaluation report:
