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, and our training is being postponed or moving virtual.

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.

Primary Resources

We have learned a lot over the years about how to best deliver LGBT+ positive education to primary aged children. Some of the keys things are:

  • This is the best time to do this positive work! Children are naturally accepting and lack prejudice, so this is the ideal time to introduce them to different types of people that exist in our (and in their) worlds…
  • This work should be fun, positive and engaging.
  • That children can, and absolutely should, know the language and terminology for different kinds of people and their experiences.
  • That LGBT+ specific education should be separated out – lessons that focus on same-gender relationships and equal marriage (and therefore lesbian, gay and bisexual identities), should be very separate and different lessons to those that focus on gender identity (trans and non-binary folk).
