About this service

METRO Bridge runs two youth groups every Monday for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, queer and questioning young people in Croydon.

It's a safe space to meet other LGBTQ young people, get support and have fun. We usually have snacks and hang out together. Sometimes we talk about identity, relationships and wellbeing. Every Christmas we have a party with dancing, pizza and cake. We also go to the cinema, Croydon Pride and UK Black Pride.

Who can use this service

You need to be aged between 11 and 26 and live in Croydon. You also need to identify as LGBTQ or be questioning your sexuality or gender identity. Our group from 6-8pm is for people aged between 11 and 16. Our group from 8pm-9:30pm is for people aged between 17 and 25. All our youth groups are free and confidential.
