Hello there, nice to meet you! You've landed on the website of Space Youth Project, Dorset's LGBT+ youth project. Please take a look around to see all we have to offer! 

So what is Space about? Well, let us tell you...


Space Youth Project runs regular youth groups all across Dorset, in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester, Weymouth, and Sherborne, for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and questioning young people. 

We additionally offer one-to-one support, family support, and training for professionals.

We have been around since 2001, starting with one group based in Bournemouth. Over the years, Space has evolved. Space is built up of seven groups, a number of services, our lovely team, and of course, our members! 

Our aims are to: 

Support
We support young people who are or may be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or questioning their sexuality and/or gender identity

Empower
To empower all young people to have positive self-esteem and confidence, for them to know they are supported and to give them a sense that they are part of a community and never alone. To facilitate freedom of expression and association. 

Overcome
We overcome and help with integration, address issues caused or intensified by prejudice and provide access to additional support and services.
