Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

The Proud Trust is now operating digitally, as we make significant changes to how we operate in this time of international concern.

All youth groups and 1-1s (face-to-face contact) are not running in their usual venues and are being delivered virtually instead.

Our LGBT+ Centre is closed, if you want to get in touch, contact us at centre@theproudtrust.org

Our face to face training is also postponed, but some courses have moved virtual. Information on upcoming virtual training, can be found here.

Youth workers will be sending out Google Hangout links for our group work and 1-1 support. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We are still here for you and all LGBT+ young people.

Please share this with young people or colleagues where relevant.

How To Set Up An LGBT+ Group In A School Or College

 

We’re seeing a marked increase in the number of secondary schools and colleges setting up their own LGBT+ groups. This is a wonderful development, offering students – many of whom might not be able to go to their local LGBT+ youth group – the opportunity to access information and have fun, in a safe and supported environment.

This “How to Set Up and LGBT+ Group in a School or College” guide will give you all the tips and pointers you need, to help you set up your very own in-school or in-college LGBT+ group.

This guide is available to buy from our shop, or comes free as part of the LGBT+ Groups in Schools Alliance subscription.


Simple Guide To Inclusive Monitoring

Every organisation has a duty to make LGBT people’s identities visible and affirmed. Any easy way to do this is to ‘usualise’ people’s identities through routine monitoring forms. Download the attached for an easy guide to inclusive monitoring 

 See the-classroom website for more info on usualising


Setting Up an LGBT Youth Group

 

Whether you are a youth worker, a member of the LGBT community, a parent or a teacher, you may have researched your area, and realised that there is no LGBT+ youth group support for young people locally.

If you think you might like to help remedy this, you can set up a group! Download this guide to setting up and running LGBT youth groups (produced in partnership between The Proud Trust, Stonewall and The Kite Trust).

Planning a Parent’s Event

 

Holding scheduled events for the parents, carers and friends of LGBT+ young people can prove to be a very rewarding experience for all involved. Parents, carers and friends are able to ask questions, and demystify what LGBT+ youth provisions offer and do, and LGBT+ young people feel better supported, and often empowered from the events.

Including LGBT People in Sport – A Guide

Many lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people find organised sports to be intimidating and alienating, having experienced homophobia and transphobia within sport, particularly school sport, from an early age. What can we do about this?

We worked with Pride Sports to produce this guide.
