755 TEACHERS ACROSS BRITAIN EMPOWERED TO TACKLE BULLYING

Stonewall delivers training to teachers through Train the Trainer courses. These courses equip pastoral, anti-bullying and PSHE leads in schools to train colleagues in tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

The training also helps teachers to understand how to support LGBT young people, as well as how to meet the requirements of the new Ofsted inspection framework.

Our Future Plans

FEAR OF DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE

Our Response :

Continue to work with institutions to embed cultures of inclusion and acceptance across workplaces and service provision. We will broaden this impact by transforming institutions into advocates and enablers of social change in the communities and marketplaces they operate in, here and abroad.

PHYSICAL VIOLENCE A REALITY & LOW HATE CRIME REPORTING

Our Response :

We must deepen our understanding of sector-specific challenges, develop related strategies and tailor our interventions, particularly for service provision across education, in sport, with faith organisations, with national umbrella bodies across the private and public sectors, and with SMEs.

WORKING AND ENGAGING WITH SMALL & MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMES) HERE & ABROAD

Our Response :

We need to grow our international impact through existing programmes and by expanding our influence and work to more countries through collaboration with LGBT campaigners and institutions. As part of this, we must better collaborate with and support our Global Diversity Champions (GDCs) and Global Founding Partners (GFPs) to drive social change through their activities and influence.

INEQUALITY IN HEALTHCARE, RURAL SETTINGS, PLACES OF WORSHIP & SPORT

Our Response :

We must understand and address issues faced by specific LGBT communities, and how institutions can affect change for these groups, including trans people, LGBT BAME/PoC or disabled people, older LGBT people, NEETs (those Not in Education, Employment or Training), youth, LGBT people of faith, and LGBT people in rural or isolated communities.
