Skittles is a new LGBTI+ group in Fermoy SPY project, it runs every Friday from 4-6pm! The aim of this group is to have a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for any young person who identifies as LGBTI+ in the community.
Skittles LGBTI+ group is the first of its type in the locality! This group was established through a need that was identified by the youth council in CDYS Fermoy. Through this, Rose received a grant from Cork ETB’s LGBTI+ Youth Service Grant Scheme in 2019. This grant provided the group with a support worker for ten weeks and resources to be able to run the group. So far this group has been extremely successful and is growing each week. The young people are excited to get involved in different activities and programmes throughout 2020.
