NYC Launch

30th June 2011

Youth groups from the four corners of England attended the launch of the National Youth Chances (NYC) Project in London on 28th June and helped make it a successful and inspirational event. Young people spoke of their experiences growing up LGBT in Yorkshire, Somerset, London and Manchester and despite coming from a variety of backgrounds and locations there were some common experiences, particularly around bullying and homophobia. These young people will take the message of NYC back home to ensure that the project reaches its goal of surveying 15,000 LGBT young people over the next year. For more information please contact Dan@metrocentreonline.org, visit the NYC Project website at www.youthchances.org or the NYC Facebook page www.facebook.com/YouthChances

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
