My donation is specifically for countering homophobia in schools - very much a worthwhile objective and is very much a case of "Charity begins at home"

Why your donation matters
We provide more direct services and resources to more lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people than any other charity of our kind in the UK.
Our services include counselling, helpline support, sexual health, a befriending scheme, a women's programme and projects to tackle homophobia in schools. We also provide a huge range of resources for LGB people on the issues that matter to them such as safer sex and hate crime.
This is just some of the work we do in order to achieve our mission of ‘Ending Homophobia, Empowering People’. In order to realise this and continue helping thousands of LGB people each year, we need your support. Please donate now and make a difference. Thank-you.
Case study: donations in action
Joe contacted us as he wanted to take action against homophobia at his school, after seeing our Enough is Enough! campaign.
“I’d been bullied for some time, and I wanted to make people realise that even just making a stupid passing comment can have a serious effect.”
Joe, with our support, spoke at his school about what it means to be gay and the lasting impact homophobic bullying and language can have.
“I expected a lot of laughter and whispering, but thankfully, none came! Everyone has supported me the whole way through, and are proud of me. By having somebody their own age speaking to them, they take in the message a lot more.”
Joe is still part of our Enough is Enough! campaign and went on to be a Northants County Council Young Leader. Earlier this year he also won an ‘Anne Frank’ award, a scheme which recognises the work of inspirational people who make a difference to their community.
With your support we can continue to help people in our communities change their lives!
