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

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.


Workshops in Schools

LGBT+ Awareness Workshops

We have a range of age-appropriate workshops that engage children and young people in a positive conversation about gender identity and sexuality, as well as LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, plus other related) identities.

All of our workshops:

  • Are interactive and discussion based, facilitated by experienced and qualified youth workers, exploring the topic with young people where they are with their understanding;
  • Introduce appropriate terminology for a range of identities;
  • Explore the existence of LGBTphobia and what this looks like in young people’s worlds;
  • Affirm the responsibility of everyone to recognise and challenge LGBTphobic language and behaviour;
  • Make suggestions on how to be a supportive and visible ally;
  • Signpost participants to appropriate local support through our extensive network of LGBT+ youth groups.

We can be flexible with workshop length and group sizes to meet your requirements. Examples of workshops we might come and deliver in primary schools:

Relationships and Equal Marriage
Exploring Gender Identity (using Alien Nation)

Examples of workshops we might come and deliver in high schools or colleges:

Exploring Gender and Sexuality
Trans Awareness
LGBT History Month

Workshops in schools can help in the Inclusive Curriculum, Pastoral Support (and possibly Pupil Voice) sections of the Rainbow Flag Award.
