Join our Community of Practice on LGBTQI Children and Youth

Call for child helpline participants in the European Union

Child helplines across the world support tens of thousands of LGBTQI children and young people each year. Despite improvements in legislation, public attitudes and a growing visibility of diversity of gender and sexuality in popular culture, LGBTQI children and young people remain at heightened risk of violence and discrimination in school, within the family and in society in general. This can have grave negative consequences for the emotional and physical well-being of LGBTQI children and young people.  

We are starting a multi-sectoral Community of Practice for our members in the European Union with the aim to establish child helplines as a key support and information mechanism for LGBTQI children and young people.
