We chat, cook, have fun, play games, get involved with local community projects, raise awareness and celebrate key events on LGBT+ calendar we also invite guest speakers, go on trips and so much more!
The groups are all young person led so you tell us what you want in the sessions and we aim to make it happen!
We run our SPACE session every Tuesday 7pm- 9pm in central Bath.
What do you do at Rural - Outer SPACE?
Rural - Outer SPACE is an off shoot from our already established SPACE youth group located in central Bath and we are responding to the growing needs of LGBT+ (13-21yrs) to provide a similar set up within the Somer Valley area.
Rural Outer SPACE is the place to…
Meet like minded peeps, make new friends and a place where you can be you
Share experiences and find helpful resources on LGBT + issues
Do creative stuff like rainbow crafts, arts, cooking, eating and enjoy fun times
We run Rural - Outer SPACE fortnightly Mondays 6pm - 8pm in the Somer Valley Area. (Venue details to be given out at time of enquiry.)
What do you do at SPACE to Be?
In response to requests from children and young people, parents, schools, local authority, mental health professionals and national organisations to support children of this age are setting up SPACE to Be. This group aims to provide a safe environment for children up to the age of 12, who are trans, gender variant or questioning their gender identity.
We run SPACE to Be monthly every Saturday 10:30am - 12:30pm

As well as the weekly groups, we can also offer one to one sessions.
This is a one to one space where you can chat to us about anything that may be affecting you because of your sexuality or gender identity. We will listen to you, and offer you help/ support with any issues you may have. You can meet us at our offices in Bath, or we can come to your school, college or university- whatever you’d prefer.
