A youth worker from Manchester is to be awarded an MBE for her services to the LGBT community. “Through her work at LGBT Youth North West Sally Carr has made a huge contribution to the lives of thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) young people in the North West of England and continues to do so every day in her dedication to young people’s rights and voices in her exemplary youth work career,” a spokesperson for the organisation said.

Carr has worked at Lesbian and Gay Youth Manchester (LGYM) for 25 years working to ensure LGBT young people are healthy, safe and fulfil their potential whilst learning to love themselves and enjoy life.

 

In 1996 she set up and supported the Peer Support Project, a charity for intensive support of LGBT young people. In 2002 she established The Women’s Health Project empowering young lesbian and bisexual women through anti-sexist youth work practice, before launching the infrastructural support organisation LGBT Youth North West at which she is currently operations director.

“Sally is an active advocate for justice and equality, her positivity and passion is contagious and we are proud to call her our own,” Claire Holmes for LGBT Youth North West told DIVA
