Organisation type: Social Enterprise
2BU-Somerset was established in 2003 and began by organising social activities for young people aged 14-18 who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) living in Somerset. 2BU aims to provide a safe environment for young people who find socialising difficult, offers a varied programme to enable young people the opportunity to become comfortable with their sexuality and gain confidence from their peers.
Young people identified as feeling socially excluded as a result of their emerging or identified sexuality. Having the opportunity to meet socially and share experiences gives young people the occasion to engage in positive activities and develop their confidence and self esteem. 2BU continues to adapt to the needs of young LGBT people.
