New Resource for Balbriggan LGBT Community

News General News

Are you part of the LGBT community? Are you struggling with change?

Flemington Community Centre in partnership with Fingal Community Development Office are supporting the LBT Community with Building resilience and managing through change.

Outcomers have helped develop the Flemington LGBT social group. The group teamed up with BeWellDoWell who specialise in creating Mental Health Educational material and have previously worked with the Balbriggan Community Centres before on projects like the Mens Winter Project, Dad 2.0 and Dad 3.0.

Bewelldowell have created two amazing videos as a resource to help manage through change and build resilience. The videos have been pre-recorded and can be viewed at any time. Anyone interested in subscribing can do so by emailing and all enquires will be treated in confidence.

For more information you can watch the introductory video here at: LGBT Support – YouTube

Outcomers began in September 2021 as a 24-week programme encompassing resilience training, reading materials and room space . It encourages community participation through engagement, accessibility and training. LGBTQ+ Community make up roughly 10% of our community. Those who have been isolated during Covid19 remain a priority and a support group in Flemington Community Centre is underway. 

Isolation can be a key theme for members of the LGBTQ+ community leading to social exclusion and community isolation. This project offers support to the group/individuals to identify group culture, individual resilience and participation in civic life in Balbriggan. This programme for LGBTQ+ resilience training, group development and materials is in line with government directives, the Fingal Integration Strategy and the work of the Community Development Office.
