Parenting Scheme 2016: Kids

The LGBT+ parenting scheme is an annual scheme run by the CUSU LGBT+ independent campaign as a way to introduce new students (either Undergraduate or Graduate) or even existing students to the LGBT+ community at Cambridge University. The scheme aims to be beneficial to all, regardless of whether you’re interested in making friends, being introduced to the social scene, or seeking support in exploring your own sexuality or gender identity. You don’t have to be certain about how you identify – everyone is welcome.

After signing up, you should receive an e-mail prior to or during Michaelmas term (i.e. the 1st term of the year starting in October and ending in December), informing you of your parents. You will then be able to contact your parents (or they will contact you) with any queries you have about identifying as LGBT+ in Cambridge, or Cambridge life in general. There will be a number of events during the 1st term related to the parenting scheme, and your parents may also arrange events (e.g. a family meal).

If you have any questions about the scheme (or anything else) you can email the welfare officer (, or the computing officer (
