Thanks to John Lyon's Charity, we have been able to ensure that schools in Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent, Westminster and Ealing are all LGBT+ friendly through staff training, PRIDE workshops for pupils and our PRIDE in Inclusion Award programme

'I am just emailing to pass on my wholehearted support for the Educate & Celebrate EDI Award programme. I consider it to be the school's (and my own!) duty to prepare my children for life in an ever-changing, constantly diversifying 21st century Britain. I want my children, and their friends, to know that there is no such thing as 'normal' or 'right', and that to accept and value others who may appear to be different to oneself is an unquestioning attribute of a fair and just society.'

Over 70 schools in Durham have achieved their PRIDE in Inclusion award to date, thanks to our long standing partnership with Durham County Council Children and Young People's Services. We have also been able to provide training  for council staff.
