Pride in North Cumbria (PiNC) provides support services and a safe social group for LGBTQIA+ young people; aged between 13 and 25 years.
We provide a safe environment for young people to socialise, take part in workshops, and get involved in activities and events. In the sessions, there is information and advice, and a chance to discuss issues that effect individuals and the group. Young people are encouraged to get involved in project planning, so they can help influence the direction of our activities and services.
PiNC is a charitable organisation with over 15 years of operational experience. During this time we have developed from a small social group, into an organisation that now also performs outreach, campaigns, consultation and more, to support and protect Cumbria’s LGBT+ young people.
Based at Cumbria’s LGBThq in Carlisle, we work closely with other organisations located at the centre, including Cumbria Pride and Sticky Bits Cafe. We also have well established partnerships and working relationships with other youth groups, universities, colleges and schools.
