Somerset County Council has awarded a one-year grant to youth group 2BU.
2BU’s contract with the council ends at the end of March and is being replaced with a grant, reviewed annually, bringing it into line with other youth groups. 2BU provides advice and support for Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) young people.
“We have always recognised the value of support of this kind,” said Councillor Frances Nicholson, Somerset County Council Cabinet Member for Children and Families.
“The grant-funding will be reviewed each year and brings the group into line with other youth groups in the county.”
