Make schools safer
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. Donate to a pack to help this generation and the next.
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.
If you would like to support the work we do with young people on an on-going basis we have a fantastic regular donor scheme and all donations will go directly to delivering our services. Go to www.lgf.org.uk/donate or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details of other ways you can get involved.
Safer School Packs include:
* the Enough is Enough! Action Against Homophobia 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)
* Stickers & balloons
* 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.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! ACTION AGAINST HOMOPHOBIA. Homophobia is still a daily reality for lesbian, gay and bisexual people and their family and friends - on the street, at school, at work and where we live. It has never been more important to come together and highlight that homophobia is unacceptable and needs to stop. Enough is Enough!
