Square Chapel announced as a safe space for LGBTQ+ people by Barnardo’s Charity

Square Chapel Arts Centre is delighted to have been highlighted as a safe space for everyone who identifies as LGBTQ+. Awarded through Barnardo’s Positive Identity Service, the charity offers direct support to children and young people around their gender and sexual identities, whilst working with parents, carers and families along the way.

Barnardo’s Children Charity have worked closely with Square Chapel, delivering training to its staff and volunteers, whilst raising awareness of LGBTQ lives, promoting inclusion and ways of tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

“We are pleased and proud to be a safe, welcoming space for everyone. The team from Barnardo’s have been brilliant, offering great training and support to our own staff team and volunteers, so we’d like to say a big thank you to them.” Maria Spadafora, Education and Engagement Coordinator

“A huge thank you to the Barnado’s team for their guidance in ensuring we are safe and welcoming for everyone. We look forward to building this relationship  so these values transcend beyond the building and the young people we work with in the community also benefit” Jamie Eagleton, Arts Outreach Officer
