SpeakOut is our LGBTQ+ peer support group and is a relaxed place to check-in and share your progress and to help you connect with others in the community.   

The group is for anyone who identifies as LGBTQ+, regardless of your approach to quitting - members of AA, SMART, and other groups are all welcome.  

SpeakOut runs from 10.00 to 11.30 on Thursday mornings at the Ledward Centre Cafe in Brighton town centre.
