Q:alliance is a small charity with a bold mission - to support a safe and informed LGBTQ+ community that feels empowered to contribute fully to a healthy society.
We take this charge very seriously - running a number of Youth Groups in Milton Keynes and Bedford for LGBTQ+ youth, as well as a MK based parent support group to share knowledge and resources for parents of LGBTQ+ kids. But we don't stop there - we also run a number of adult support groups wherever we find a need within the community - be that dog walks, sports days, peer to peer support groups or just a chance to catch up over a coffee and waffles. We also work local government services to improve their support to our community as well as connecting with local charities and groups to build up an alliance of support throughout the MK area for the LGBTQ+ community.
Some recent examples of the great work our team do:
- Pride:MK 2019 - as a project of Q, we collaborated with a huge number of passionate people, charities and businesses to bring our inaugural pride event to MK, where over 12,000 of you joined us!
- Training Days - in 2019 we provided a full day training session for MK professionals around the various aspects of LGBTQ+ identity, and how they can be powerful allies to our community.
