Since 2008 our Youth Volunteers have reached over 10,000 people (including MPs, councillors, teachers and pupils) but we need your help to grow the programme further.
Shockingly, two out of three young lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) pupils are still being bullied in schools. 92% are verbally abused, 42% are physically bullied and 17% receive death threats. The fear and trauma from this leaves LGB young people extremely vulnerable and far less likely to achieve their potential both at school and beyond.
Stonewall's Youth Volunteering Programme gives young LGB people the skills and confidence to challenge the harmful issues of homophobia, bullying, exclusion and discrimination in their local schools and communities.
We want to grow this important scheme, given its success and impact to date. However, the initial funding has come to an end and we need your help to continue with this crucial work. Please consider making a donation now:
