Gup Shup & Chai

Initially Gup Shup & Chai was established to offer a safe space where women in the Birkby community could meet to chat and enjoy a cup of tea. The group has since evolved to bring together parts of the community who would not usually interact, creating a place where the residents can learn about each other's cultures and make new friends.

Huddersfield Students' Union

Huddersfield Students' Union brought together 14 different local organisations to deliver HudPride. It was a great success, there was a range of entertainment and activities attracting over 800 people across the weekend. Pride celebrates the LGBT+ movement and aims to inclusive to all. The Students Union is a charity run for the university students but they generously organised a festival for the whole town.
