Queer Parents group

Couple with baby

Having a baby is rarely without its challenges, but having a baby when you’re also LGBTQ+ can bring additional experiences and difficulties to navigate.

We know how much it can really help to meet other parents, with the same experiences, to share the load with.

This is a series of relaxed meet-ups to make connections with other LGBTQ+ parents and build a supportive community.

About the group

Queer Parents group is an informal coffee and play session where parents can connect in a relaxed and non-judgmental space.

The groups are led by trained volunteers with their own personal experiences of being a LGBTQ+ parent and managing the challenges of early parenthood. As well as being a place to share similarities and celebrate differences, the courses offer an opportunity to connect with other parents and learn tips and techniques for looking after your wellbeing.

Upcoming Queer Parents groups

The groups are open to LGBTQ+ parents of young children.

NB: Because this is a Lewisham-funded initiative, priority spaces are given to Lewisham residents; however, parents from Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth and Southwark are welcome too if space is available.

Course length: ten weeks

When: Wednesdays 12-1pm, 15 May – 17 July

Where: Clyde Family Hub, Alverton St, London SE8 5NH

NB: Booking is essential due to limited spaces; places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
