Cara-Friend is the LGBTQ+ Youth Service for Northern Ireland. We provide safe-space youth groups and one-to-one support for LGBTQ+ young people aged 12-25.
Cara-Friend was established in 1974 as a voluntary counseling, befriending, information, health and social space organisation for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans(LGB&T) community.
Since then we have established ourselves as one of the most encompassing organisations in Northern Ireland, bringing together all ages, all genders and sexual orientations under one umbrella.
We advocate unceasingly on behalf of the LGB&T community with the media, churches, government departments and politicians alike.
