Support for

Trans and non-binary Youth ages 13 to 21



IDENTITY is an LGBTQ group situated in the Halifax Calderdale area, formerly known as GALYIC. The group itself offers one-to-one confidential support and advice to all young people regarding sexuality, home and school concerns and any other issues a young person may have.

We are based in a secure location in the town centre that offers a safe and calm environment for young people to meet and take part in activities together every Thursday between 17:30 and 20:00.

The group is run by qualified members of staff and volunteers that are all selected by the young people. They are also qualified to deal with and provide advice on any sexuality issues.

We regularly partake in activities which include; coming out stories, getting to know you activities, and self run youth council groups to discuss upcoming matters and events.
