Schools & other professionals

Schools and colleges

We welcome partnerships with schools and colleges that will improve the life experiences and chances for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer or Questioning young people.

We hope that schools will have identified the support and interventions that they feel would be appropriate to address the issues identified in their school/college. Schools and colleges will also be aware of the need for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer and Questioning  identities and role models to be visible within the community as a method of challenging prejudice and stereotypes and raising aspirations.

This menu is to enable discussions about what can be offered, but schools may have in mind other approaches that they think that Outreach Youth can support. We would also encourage schools/colleges to  consider how the interventions will be evaluated and impact monitored.
