It’s clear that a mix of regular meetings, special events and organised outings are all popular. Donations received at our regular meetings help us to cover the cost of venue hire – thank you so much for these.

To do more than just meet at Portslade, though, we’re now asking all LGBTQ families and friends to help us raise money for the year ahead. This year we are looking to organise:

Activities for older children such as rock climbing, bush craft days in the woods, go-karting, art workshops and more!

Pride Family Area including a dedicated safe space within Preston Park in 2017.

Overnight Stays for LGBTQ families, such as camping excursions, giving children (and parents) a little longer together to form new friendships, and build community.

Teens Project to support LGBTQ parented young people on their transition to adulthood. If you love Rainbow Families, and want to help us build on our support to the LGBT community, please donate £10 (or whatever you can afford) to support our 2015 program. All donations are paid directly to the Rainbow Families bank account.
