About Us

Space Youth Project has been supporting young LGBT+ people and their families since 2001.


We started with one group based in Bournemouth and over the years, Space has grown and grown!


We now have five regular, free youth groups across Dorset which are  open to any  lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or questioning (LGBT+) young person under the age of 25!

We also offer one-to-one support, family support, workshops for schools, colleges or youth groups, and professional training

We empower young people to have positive self-esteem, to know they are supported, to have a sense of community and to facilitate freedom of expression.

Our Aims


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


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