Make Schools Safer

Homophobic Bullying in Schools

Homophobic bullying is still endemic in UK schools, but The LGF’s Safer Schools Packs help schools challenge homophobic bullying, support their lesbian, gay and bisexual students and promote understanding. 

The LGF’s Enough is Enough! Action Against Homophobia campaign is determined to encourage schools to take action – we want every school to be challenging homophobia, and talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual people, issues and relationships to promote understanding.

That’s why we are working to get as many Enough is Enough! Safer Schools Packs in to UK schools...but we need your help.

What's in a Schools' Pack?

* Enough is Enough PowerPoint and notes for assemblies, lessons and presentations

the campaign DVD (Starring Coronation Street’s Antony Cotton and featuring Sir Ian McKellen)

Support for teachers (including responsibilities, legislation, practical advice)

* Posters

* Stickers & balloons

* Resources

* Signposting and support

The Packs are inspired by the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) Safe Space Kits in America. And once we post the packs out, we'll be following up with the schools to find out how they are using the packs, and then we'll contact you to let you know about the difference your donation is making.

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

Maybe you were lucky enough to have this kind of education and know how valuable it can be and want others to experience it too, or maybe you didn't and want to ensure that this and the next generation of lesbian, gay and bisexual young people learn in a supportive and more welcoming environment. 

Take Action Now

For a donation of £20 and we can send out a Safer Schools Pack to the school of your choice, it might be your old school, your local school or your children’s school – simply nominate the school and we’ll do the rest. Click here.
