About Llanelli LGBTQ+ Support Group

The Group has been set up by members of the Llanelli LGBTQ+ Community to help provide services, activities, voluntary opportunities, support to the local LGBTQ+ Community. That includes parents, guardians and allies.

Aims of the group

  • learn how to engage with and record LGBTQ+ community problems and successes.
  • Help LGBTQ+ communities to address their problems and interact with the community
  • Challenge the perspectives given through more traditional media.

Objectives of the group:

  • Set up a regular drop-in session in a safe environment for the LGBTQ+ Community.
  • give Llanelli LGBTQ+s the ability to comment via all platforms.
  • Increase LGBTQ+ community participation.
  • Publicise Llanelli LGBTQ+ Support via attendance at events.
  • Up skill LGBTQ+ volunteers to raise their employability skills (if required)
  • Encourage the LGBTQ+ community to engage more effectively with local authorities and organisations to encourage participation and involvement.

 

The group started off as community project run by CETMA, a social enterprise based in Llanelli. CETMA had organised the first ever LGBTQ+ event in Llanelli in with 2015’s LGBT day. Following the success of the event, more and more people were interested in or were seeking some form of support.  To start providing this, CETMA organised monthly coffee mornings where anyone could just turn up and have a simple chat.   

In 2016, CETMA organised another LGBT Day, which was a larger event than the year before. Further events were organised in 2017, and 2018, with coffee mornings and a Facebook page created.

After the 2018 event, it was decided to constitute the group. On 14th January 2019, the constitution was incorporated.
