Push Projects is an LGBTQ youth support charity based in Warwick, but serving the whole county of Warwickshire. Push Projects offers support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people up to the age of 25, as well as those who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity (Q).

If going to a drop in isn't your thing but you still want some support, then we also offer telephone and email support. Click here to find out more about what we do and how you can get involved.

Hate crime is a serious issue and sadly some of us still find ourselves becoming victims of it. There's plenty of advice and support available though, and the Police DO take it seriously. Click here to go to our Hate Crime page and find all of the information you need. And remember, don't suffer in silence.

A CHANGE TO OUR DROP INS: Our Stratford drop in is moving to Tyler House in Stratford upon Avon from Tuesday 1st March. We will then be there every week (even during school/college holidays). You will find Tyler House on Tyler Street. The times of 4:00pm - 6:00pm are staying the same. Call or text 07580 532659 for info. Our Leamington drop in is still each Thursday between 6:30pm - 6:30pm at Leamington College. Get in touch if you want to come along.
WARWICKSHIRE WELLBEING FAIR: This event is being held at Leamington Spa Town Hall on Saturday 7th May. The organisers have kindly chosen Push Projects as their charity partner. If you'd like to book a stall at the event or simply pop along to indulge in some wellbeing loveliness, please head to the Warwickshire Wellbeing Fair website.
WE ARE RECRUITING: We're on the lookout for trustees and volunteers in a number of positions, including youth work, events, marketing, and social media. If you would like to make a difference to the lives of LGBTQ youth and the running of Push Projects go to the opportunities page to see details of all the roles we have available.
WARWICKSHIRE PRIDE: In July 2015 we hosted another Warwickshire Pride festival. It was a smokin' hot day and the sun shone down upon us. It was an amazing day and we can't wait to do it all again on August 20th next year.
In 2014 we went to Leamington and acted out a homophobic incident in the busy town centre to see if anyone would react. We filmed it all on a mobile phone and have turned it into a short film clip about the reality of life for some LGBT people. You can see the video below. We're sure you will agree that it's a powerful little film. Let us know what you think.
