Space Youth Project

Welcoming all young gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and questioning (LGBT+) people up to age 25 across Dorset since 2001!

We aim to support young people who are or may be LGBT+ and empower them to have positive self-esteem,
to know they are supported, to have a sense of community an
d to overcome issues caused or intensified by prejudice in order to facilitate freedom of expression.

Space Youth Project uses 'trans' as an umbrella term for those who are transgender, non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, are of non-Western gender identities and those who have a trans history.


  • A safe place and LGBT+ haven.

  • A place where we can grow to our full potential. 

  • Before I joined Space I felt like a lost soul. Now I've been here for 6 years and I feel like part of a big family

  • I like having a calm, chill space to hang out and talk away from the world.

  • I go to Space to grow confidence, make more friends, socialise, and learn vital skills when it comes to adult life especially as a LGBT+ person
