Push projects is an LGBT youth support charity based in Warwick, but serving the whole of Warwickshire. It was founded in 2011 and is the brainchild of Daniel Browne, a psychotherapist with experience of working with young people and LGBT individuals.[2]

Push Projects started as a support group for people up to 25 identifying as LGBTQ. It has since expanded to provide telephone and e-mail support, and to deliver talks and workshops.[2]

Push Projects has provided consultancy to assist with the setting up of Warwickshire's sexual assault centre.[2]

Renaming

In November 2016 Pride Projects changed its name to Warwickshire Pride, to reflect the fact that it had increasingly been working with adults as well as young people.[3]
