If Surrey County Council do practice a good policy then I havnt seen it

Can anyone ask why nothing is out there for our community, its bad enough going into libnraries and being made to feel like a freak - imagine going in asking about housing or something, what you sir gay sir no sir

this is not me, a friend of mine has applied for adoption and they are a gay couple and so gfar so good, the department there seems to be fairly good from what i hear

only thing was they dont really understand same sex couples and what they go through. is there any way they could get a better understanding ?

not being funny, but what exactly do Surrey County council do for the LGBT community, has anyone seen anything from them? have they done anything for us ?

I live in Esher so not sure if its the same thing, but to be honest who knows and frankly who cares. there is so much disingenious people in the council I imagine they rather repair roads than care about what we think

I would love to see someone from the council stand up and say they will support our rights, just once

I've never had any problems with the council. It sounds to me as though people on here are saying "I've never seen them actively doing anything for the LGBTQ community". I believe what they do is work with a number of other organisations, like Connexions and the youth group Twister, to provide help and advice to young (LGBTQ) people. So, I think the council does do some stuff, but isn't very loud about it, and mainly has an effect through other groups and businesses.
If people are interested in what they do, check out:

Hope that helps.

hey xxxSxxx

I'm still around and so is Connexions!

Connexions are now part of Surrey County Council and their funding for specialist posts like mine are absorbed into the 'core funding' of the Youth Development Services.

There are 3 Twister Youth Clubs, that are really strong. One in Guildford, one in Spelthorne and one in Redhill (Reigate and Banstead BC), the 4th Twister has been closed, not due to funding, but because of a lack of interest mainly. You can find more information on the Gay Surrey website: http://www.gaysurrey.org/younggaysurrey.htm and the Surrey County Council website: www.surreycc.gov.uk/twister (my full contact details are available on both these sites.

The young people that are members of Twister have loads of say in how the clubs are run and how the service as a whole can be improved. I have been in touch with well over 200 young people - lots of young people attend Twister, but it is the tip of the iceberg since many young people get in contact purely for advice or a chat.

I can absolutely assure you that the bosses of Surrey Youth Development Services are in full support of the Surrey LGBTQ Young People Service which incorporates the Twister network and they often report its progress to Surrey County Council.

i hope this helps, but feel free to give me a shout!
All the best
