Our Peer Groups

Peer support occurs when people provide emotional, social, and practical support to each other around a common experience or personal circumstance.

In a group setting this type of support can offer people an opportunity to explore their feelings in a safe and supportive environment, reduce social isolation, and build self-esteem.

LGBT Ireland currently runs the following Peer Support Groups.
