Ricochet is a support group for the families and friends of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people. 

The group was started by Colette Hill, the mother of two gay daughters. Talking to parents who have had similar experiences can be helpful. Call the confidential helpline on 07803 309781. 

  • Ricochet meet in Hamworthy, near Poole, on the first Saturday each month

Join as often as you like for as long as you like. Whenever you come, whatever your story, you are guaranteed a warm welcome.

Meetings are confidential and offer a safe place in which to talk - or, if you prefer, just listen. Most people find the chance to ask questions and share concerns very helpful and feel better for coming. People come from across the South West, from Southampton to Lyme Regis, as well as the Channel Islands.
