A Statement From our CEO

“Here at YPAS we are heartbroken by the news of Brianna Ghey a 16 year old trans young person who was murdered in Warrington on 11/02/23. We are unable to comment any further at this time due to the ongoing investigation.

YPAS has been supporting LGBTQ+ young people for over 40 years and it is important to highlight the fear this very community will be experiencing right now. I want to remind children, young people and families that if you are affected by this news and its causing impact on your mental health or wellbeing, feel reassured that YPAS is here to support you. You can access any of the 3 x YPAS community hubs 6 days a week: (Mon-Thurs: 9am-8pm), (Friday: 9am-6pm) and (Saturday 12-4pm – Central Hub).”
