The UK’s £2.4m LGBT+ centre opens its doors

Words by Smiley Team

LGBT+ youth charity The Proud Trust has unveiled its new, state-of-the-art LGBT+ centre: The Proud Place. 

Over the past four years, it has undergone a massive £2.4million redevelopment thanks to the financial support and expertise of household name brands, multiple trusts, and the general public.

The Proud Place – based in Manchester but now serving the UK – is now a homely, welcoming space spanning three floors, where LGBT+ people can access youth and community groups and support workers, as well as making meaningful connections with peers in the LGBT+ community at a range of events.
