Welcome to 2BU

If you're a young person living in Somerset you may find that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning your sexuality or gender identity can be  exciting as you discover who you are, it can also be challenge or difficult. Dylan one of the young people who has come through 2BU wants to say to you - "We know how hard it feels to write that first e-mail but we are a friendly lot, and are really looking forward to hearing from you! Send the e-mail, text or fill in the form on the contact us page, I know I was so glad I did and remember #it'sok2BU".

It's also here to help parents, carers and children and young people's workforce understand what is going on for LGBTQ+ young people.
