Who are we?
Families Together London provides a listening ear for parents and other family members of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people.
Learning to accept that your child is LGBT may not be easy. Meeting other parents who have faced similar challenges will help you move forward.
You can get help over the phone, meet one-to-one, or come to one of our twice monthly meetings where you can talk with other parents and families who have had similar experiences.
What happens at our meetings?
Our meetings are held in confidence, which allows us to talk freely about our thoughts and feelings. We have a library of books and resources, which you are welcome to borrow.
Meetings take place in Battersea on Saturday afternoons and King's Cross on Wednesday evenings. At our Battersea meetings, we provide a delicious light lunch.
The dates of our upcoming meetings are below. For more details, please contact us.
What if I don’t live in London?
There are groups that offer similar support elsewhere in the UK. For more details contact FFLAG.
A Parent’s Testimonial
When we learnt that our son was gay, we did not know what to do or who we could speak to without being judged, so I called FTL, and had very helpful conversations with a parent who had a gay son.
We had several phone conversations before we could pluck up the courage to attend a meeting. When we finally went we were made very welcome and we met parents like us who shared their stories and journeys of understanding and acceptance.
It gave us the courage and optimism to know that things do get better.
