Drop-in

GALYIC used to hold drop-in sessions at the Connexions Centre in Halifax. Here you could drop-in with or without an appointment and have a chat with one of the workers.

New members often came to the drop-in to meet a GALYIC worker and some of the members before going onto the youth group for the first time. Some members came to the drop-in straight from school or work before going onto the youth group to save them going home and coming back into Halifax. Sometimes parents came to the drop-in to have a chat with workers about their child being LGBT. The upper age limit for the drop-in was 21 years.

Sometimes workers from other agencies came to the drop-in to discuss how they could best support a young person who has come out to them
