Don't shut down Wiltshire LGBT youth services!

This petition had 64 supporters

Recently, LGBT youth groups across Wiltshire have been notified that the groups are being shut down. Over the past years, these groups have been a refuge for many young people in the community, and in actual fact required very little funding, only needing a room to be rented and a youth worker to run the sessions. Personally, I know that myself and many others have greatly benefited from these services, to the point of potentially saving lives from suicide, as well as providing a safe refuge where LGBT young people can be true to themselves. It is absolutely shocking that the verdict was to shut down these groups, as without them the already partially oppressed groups may have an even harder time. We ask Laura Mayes & Wiltshire County Council to reconsider this verdict, as it is extremely beneficial to young people all across Whiltshire.
