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.

Inclusive RSE – The Sexuality aGender Toolkit

For many years, the young people that we work with have been telling us that their needs are not being met through the sexual health education that they have received through mainstream education:

  • Lesbian, gay and bisexual young people tell us they feel excluded for sexual health education, due to a heavy focus on pregnancy and contraception;
  • Trans young people tell us they feel disempowered to engage in sexual health education programmes, due to incorrect assumptions being made about them and their body parts, by the subject facilitator.

When we explore the often banded about phrase “gay sex”, we soon come to the conclusion that there is actually, no such thing. So what has become apparent, is that a sexual health toolkit specifically for LGBT+ young people is not what is needed. Rather, a toolkit that enables a broader set of conversations with all young people is what is required. It is this realisation that led to the development of Sexuality aGender – An Inclusive Sexual Health Toolkit.

Sexuality aGender v2 has been launched, and is a fully planned out and resourced four lesson/session pack that:

  • Can be delivered as part of your PSHE programme;
  • Helps you meet your statutory requirements to deliver LGBT+ inclusive RSE;
  • Helps you meet the needs of all students, including those that are LGBT+, and those from LGBT+ families, in line with the Equality Act (2010) and Ofsted obligations;
  • Is fun, engaging and easy to deliver!
