BeLonG To Youth Services is the national organisation supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI+) young people in Ireland. Since 2003, BeLonG To has worked with LGBTI+ young people to create a world where they are equal, safe and valued in the diversity of their identities and experiences. The organisation also advocates and campaigns on behalf of young LGBTI+ people, and offers a specialised LGBTI+ youth service with a focus on mental and sexual health, alongside drug and alcohol outreach.

Drug and Alcohol Service
Our dedicated Drug and Alcohol Service continued in 2018 with the provision of a safe, confidential space for LGBTI+ young people to discuss concerns around their drug and alcohol use with a Youth Worker dedicated to LGBTI+ drug and alcohol use. In July, Gerard Roe who held this role for eight years, moved on from BeLonG To. In November we welcomed Shane Smart who joined the team from CARP Killinarden Addiction Response Centre and Resilience Care Ireland. Shane’s work will focus on our Drug and Alcohol Service and advocating on the new National Drug Strategy Reducing Harm, Supporting Recovery 2017–2025.
