Funding & Governance

BeLonG To Youth Services aspires to the highest levels of governance and openness in all of our work to eliminate homophobia and transphobia, and support LGBTI+ young people and families in need.

We work with more than 1,500 lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people and families each year. Our annual expenditure is approximately €830,000.

Our team of qualified and skilled staff work in very sensitive situations with young people who have very complex needs. We support and empower young LGBTI+ people to thrive in their gender and sexual identity. Our direct work with young people and families is supported by professional expertise in the areas of finance, governance, advocacy, communications and fundraising.

We receive statutory funding for a number of our projects and programmes, all aimed at changing the experiences LGBTI+ people have growing up. Each of these projects and services operates under a service level agreement and we provide detailed reports to our funders on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis.
