We're delighted to continue and develop our ongoing collaboration with BeLonG To, supporting young LGBTI+ people's mental health.

Working with BeLonG To

Jigsaw and BeLonG To came together in 2016 to find a way to support LGBTI+ young people and their mental health. We co-designed a day-long workshop for those who work or volunteer with young people.

Since then, we have delivered this workshop 20 times in different locations around Ireland, to 336 adults who work or volunteer with young people.
