This service is funded through a Grant of US$ 25,000 by the US Embassy and being implemented also in collaboration with Agenzija Zghazagh. Its planning phase started in September 2013 and the services were open to the public in October 2013. This service incorporates the Social Work service, a Youth Group for LGBTIQ persons aged between 15 and 25, Psychological Support, and a Legal Consultancy Service. The project also allows for the provision of workshops or training to schools and professionals involved in the provision of social welfare services.
Since October 2013, the Social Work service has been in contact with over 25 individuals and families and has met with over 25 young people through the youth group. During the official launch that took place in December 2013, the Parliamentary Secretary for Youth and Sports confirmed Agenzija Zghazagh shall continue to fund and provide the location for the LGBTIQ Youth Group. The funding period for this service is until September 2014, however an application for the Government’s NGO Fund was submitted in December 2013 and MGRM is currently awaiting news about its application.
