Stonewall

Stonewall Education Champion logoStonewall's Education for All campaign, launched in January 2005, helps tackle homophobia and homophobic bullying in schools and works with a wide coalition of groups.

More recently Stonewall has formed partnerships with organisations outside Parliament to ensure the rights and needs of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals are addressed in the wider community.

Stonewall has also raised public awareness in terms of civil partnership, through our Get Hitched guide and on the changes to the employment regulations relating to sexual orientation through guides for both employers and employees.

In addition, Stonewall promotes new research on issues such as hate crime, lesbian health and homophobic bullying in schools.

Gloucestershire County Council is now a Stonewall Education Champion and wishes to promote equal rights and opportunities for all children and young people in the county, no matter what their sexual orientation.

As part of the Education Champions programme, local authorities work with Stonewall and each other to establish ways in which they can address homophobic bullying and promote a safe and inclusive learning environment for all young people.
