Getting in touch is easy!
The vast majority of (new and potential) weekly group members choose to drop us a quick email us at email@example.com. We’ll then send you an email telling you all about OutZone, where and when we meet, and we’ll also give you the option of popping in for a chat with a member of staff beforehand, if you’re feeling a bit nervous about coming along to the weekly group for the first time. You can also find out more via our lively social networking pages and groups on Facebook. You’ll need to add us as a ‘friend’, though! Or, if you prefer, you can telephone us on: 020 7700 1323 (during office hours) and ask to speak to someone from OutZone.
If a member of the youthwork team is unavailable when you telephone, please leave your name and an email address (or a contact number and a time when it’s best to call you back), and we’ll get back to you as soon as we possibly can. We aim to answer all emails within 5 days.

Coming along to the groups for the first time?
If you’ve never been to a group for young men who identify mainly as gay or bisexual (or ‘unsure’), and would like to meet with a member of staff before coming along for the first time, just let us know when you contact us and we can arrange it. On the other hand, you may just want to email us (or call) to find out where and when we meet – and turn up. It’s entirely up to you.
cellphone4…we DO understand you may be feeling nervous about coming to the group or getting in touch – it’s only natural…
We are happy to answer any other questions you might have about the group and its activities. If after getting in touch you don’t think the groups are for you, that’s fine too. You can email us (in total confidence) at email@example.com and we’ll send you full details ASAP.
If you contact us by telephone (020 7700 1323 – during office hours), we’ll usually ask you for your first name, your age and what part of London you’re living in. We’ll tell you a bit about our group and weekly events; its members; the type of things we get up to, and we’ll give you full details about where and when we meet. If you email us, we’ll can also send you a map with full directions, including tube, train and bus routes.
