At FRC, we encourage diversity and are always working on ways to improve our program and service offerings. We have some exciting LGBTQ/2S inclusion projects happening in the upcoming months.

Counselling & Parent Support Group

This Fall, our counselling and family support team will continue to provide inclusive support to LGBTQ/2S individuals and families. We are also starting a group program for parents and caregivers of LGBTQ/2S children and youth, and hope to offer some fun gatherings that children can attend, too.

Youth Group

In September, our LGBTQ/2S Youth Group will start up again and continue meeting on a weekly basis. The group meets Monday evenings and is open to all people from the ages of 14-19.

Free Training

There will be a free Trans Care BC training session on September 29th from 1 to 4:30 PM in Vernon. This session will offer training on gender inclusive practice for medical professionals and community workers. Contact Avril (see below) to register for this training.
