DIVERSITY & INCLUSION WORKSHOPS

Celebrating LGBTQ+ in Education

Every school has a responsibility to promote diversity and equality, to ensure the school experience is inclusive of all its students. With an influx of young people identifying within the LGBTQ+ umbrella it is vital that peers, teachers and parents are equipped with tools to further support these individuals. 

Mental health and substance misuse issues are significantly higher for LGBTQ+ youth. This includes gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. 

 

“It has led to a much more supportive and cohesive student body where all our students feel safe and happy”

 

Our inclusive workshops for schools and youth organisations are an opportunity for  young people to show their commitment to promoting acceptance and celebrating diversity.

Having visible role models can help give a young person the confidence to embrace who they are...​
