Petition Continue to fund the LGBT anti-bullying scheme in schools.
It was announced on 19th November 2020 that the government is axing the £4mil a year anti-bullying of LGBT young people scheme. This scheme seems vital and value for money at a fraction of the national budget. We call for it to be retained.
LGBT young people are much more likely to suffer from mental illness and low self worth than their peers. Many face bullying and exclusion because of who they are. We just continue to educate our children and young people about the need to accept and celebrate people of all sexual and gender identities. It is an investment in our national future.
