We want to that across the UK, every LGBTQ young person of colour has access to a local provision and support that is led by LGBTQ people of colour.
In 2016, we came together as a small group of QTIPOC youth workers, in search of support, community and more joined up working for supporting QTIPOC youth in the UK and within our youth organisations. That year we ran our very first QTIPOC youth residential.
Over the years, Colours Youth Network has continued to grow in our offer for young people and youth workers. We have supported young people from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales but this is just the beginning, we want to do long term sustainable work that builds a legacy in the UK.
In 2019 Colours Youth Network was nominated for a National Diversity Award and in 2020 we were acknowledged in the British LGBT Awards top 10 Community and Charity Initiatives.
Colours Youth UK is an independent QTIPOC youth organisation
