What support do Belong To offer?

BeLonG To multi-language online resource
BelongTo recently hosted international friends to their head office in Dublin. The young activists who visited are members of Zagreb Pride are involved in the LGBTI+ organisation from Croatia. Even though languages were different and everyone came from various backgrounds, it was a meeting that showed how united members of the LGBTI+ across the world are. The idea for the new project was inspired from this meeting, and put into action.
BelongTo were supported on this project by the Community Foundation for Ireland, which allowed them to be able to launch their new digital project to allow members of the LGBTI+ to have access to all services and online advice in their native language.You can find this new resource here.
