Help Prevent School Bullying - Vote for LGF!

Publish Date: 26/09/2011

With just the press of a few buttons you could help us win enough votes – to provide 300 Safer Schools Packs.

The packs help schools challenge homophobic bullying and support young, lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

Two thirds of young lesbian, gay and bisexual people report being bullied and we want this to change! You can help make that change by voting for our Safer Schools Packs.

You can find out more and vote for us by visiting: http://communityforce.natwest.com/project/3277

Voting is open now and closes on Sunday 23rd October. So what are you waiting for? Log on and make your vote count!

The NatWest CommunityForce initiative provides financial assistance to local projects and charities, but also empowers communities to get involved with causes close to their hearts.

As well as voting for a project you can choose to raise awareness of it and sign up to be a volunteer.

All young people – regardless of sexual orientation – have the right to learn and achieve in a safe and welcoming environment.

We need as many votes as possible and will be publicising the vote throughout October, so look out for web, twitter and facebook updates.

If you’d also like to send a Safer Schools Pack to a school of your choice, you can donate to the campaign at www.lgf.org.uk/schoolspack

“I’ve been involved in several incidents of emotional, verbal and sometimes physical abuse. I’m sure if they were educated just a little, things might change for the better.” Grace, 15

"The students have watched the videos and looked at the presentation. They have fully interacted with the resources. I think the school is now more inclusive than ever before. So overall, effective and very much useful and used." Reddish Vale Technology College.
